According to multiple reports, including one from ESPN, Georgia Tech is close to finalizing a deal with Boston Celtics assistant Damon Stoudamire to become the Yellow Jackets next head coach. Stoudamire would replace Josh Pastner, who was released late last week after a seven year run in Atlanta.
Stoudamire played 13-seasons in the NBA for four teams after starring at Arizona. He was hired by the Celtics in 2021 after a five-year stint as the head coach at Pacific (71–77 – .480). Stoudamire was tabbed as the WCC Coach of the Year following the 2019-20 season after leading the Tigers to a 23-10 record. He has also worked as an assistant at the college level at Arizona and Memphis, and has also spent time on the Grizzlies staff.
More on this one once it becomes official.
