NEW ORLEANS PELICANS PROMOTE TERESA WEATHERSPOON TO ASSISTANT COACH
The New Orleans Pelicans have announced that Teresa Weatherspoon has been promoted to assistant coach on head coach Stan Van Gundy’s staff.
Along with the promotion of Weatherspoon, the team also announced the hiring of Bob Beyer, Casey Hill, and Rex Walters as assistant coaches, as well as Corey Brewer and Beno Udrih as player development coaches. Assistant coach Fred Vinson returns to the team under Van Gundy who was hired as the new head coach on October 22.
“I am excited about our coaching staff,” said Van Gundy in a written statement. “We have a great mix of background, experience, perspective, and expertise. Four of our assistants have been head coaches at the professional or NCAA Division I levels. Five of our coaches played in the NBA or WNBA. Three coaches have institutional knowledge having worked for [executive vice president of basketball operations David] Griff[in], [general manager] Trajan [Langdon], and current Pelicans players, while three others have worked with me and two bring us an entirely new perspective. I am looking forward to working with this staff to maximize the potential of our talented players.”
