According to Ken Berger, Mike Woodson has reached and agreement with the Clippers.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports has reported that the Clippers have added Mike Woodson to their coaching staff.

Woodson has a record of 315-365 in in 8 full seasons and one partial season as a head coach.  He has been the head coach of the Hawks and Knicks, and made the playoffs in five of his nine seasons.  He's been an assistant in Milwaukee, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Detroit.

He also played for the Clippers from 1986 to 1988.

Berger also revealed that the Clippers are interested in adding Lawrence Frank and Sam Cassell.

Frank has a record of 279-335 in seven full season and two partial seasons as a head coach.  He's been the head coach in New Jersey and Detroit.  Last season, he was Jason Kidd's lead assistant in Brooklyn before clashing with Kidd.

Sam Cassell has been an assistant coach in Washington after recently retiring from a successful playing career.  Cassell played for the Clippers in the mid 2000's, notably being the starting point guard on the playoff team in 2006 that featured Elton Brand, Corey Maggette, Cuttino Mobley, Chris Kaman, Shaun Livingston, Quinton Ross, and all those old fan favorites.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers needs to hire assistants after he lost Tyronn Lue to Cleveland, Alvin Gentry to Golden State, and Kevin Eastman to a front office position within the Clippers organization.
