Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Clippers are changing up their coaching staff a little bit. Casey Hill, who was the head coach of the Agua Caliente Clippers last year, is moving to Doc Rivers’ staff with the NBA squad.
Natalie Nakase, who was a video coordinate for the Clippers a couple years ago and was an assistant coach in Agua Caliente last year, is also getting shifted back to the LA Clippers, where she will join the player development team.
Replacing Hill as the AC head coach is Brian Adams, who was a Coaching Associate/Video Scouting Director for the Clippers last year. He has previously coached with the Celtics (during Doc Rivers’ championship tenure in the late 2000s), and was also a collegiate coach at Harvard and Marist.
Congratulations to Adams on his first head coaching gig, and on Hill and Nakase for getting key positions at the NBA level. It will be exciting to see each of their impacts on the LA and AC Clippers this season.
