The Indiana Pacers surprisingly fired head coach Nate McMillan earlier this summer after yet another strong season resulted in a first-round playoff sweep. The move came shortly after the team signed him to an extension.
It’s rather clear that general manager Chad Buchanan and Co. are looking to change things up big time.
According to a recent report, that includes one big-name potential head coach.
SAN ANTONIO SPURS ASSISTANT COACH BECKY HAMMON AND FORMER SACRAMENTO KINGS AND MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES COACH DAVE JOERGER ARE AMONG MORE THAN A DOZEN CANDIDATES WHO ARE EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN A FIRST ROUND OF VIRTUAL INTERVIEWS FOR THE INDIANA PACERS COACHING JOB,” ESPN’S ADRIAN WOJNAROWSKI REPORTED WEDNESDAY.
To be clear, those Woj listed as potential head-coaching candidates boast a wide array of experience and prevous success. In addition to Joerger and Hammon, it’s a pretty strong list.
