Cavaliers Hire Egan As Assistant Coach
Jun. 09, 2005
CLEVELAND (AP) _ New Cavaliers coach Mike Brown added his first assistant on Thursday, bringing Hank Egan, his former college coach, onto his staff in Cleveland.
Egan, who had been retired and out of coaching the past two years, coached Brown for two seasons at the University of San Diego. The 67-year-old Egan brings 39 years of coaching experience to Cleveland's staff. Egan has been an NBA assistant for nine seasons.
``I feel fortunate to have a coach of Hank's caliber join my staff,'' said Brown, who at 34 is the league's second-youngest coach. ``He brings great experience to our team. He has coached at all levels and has been a part of many successful teams as both a head coach and a trusted assistant.''
Egan was on San Antonio's staff when the Spurs won the NBA title in 1999. He coached at the Air Force Academy and San Diego joining the Spurs in 1994.
The Cavaliers also hired Bryant Moore as a video coordinator. Moore spent last season as an assistant coach at California-Riverside.
