MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - NBA assistant Damon Stoudamire will join
Memphis Tigers coach Josh Pastner's staff as an assistant, pending
approvement by university officials.
The Tigers announced the move Tuesday. Vacancies on the Tigers'
staff were created when Glynn Cyprien left on May 21 to become an
assistant at Texas A&M and Willis Wilson was named head coach at
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in March.
Stoudamire has spent the past two years as a Memphis Grizzlies
assistant coach, and his duties included coaching the team's 2010
summer league squad.
The guard was a four-year standout at Arizona and averaged 13.4
points, 6.1 assists and 3.4 rebounds in his 13 years in the NBA. He
was the No. 7 overall pick by the Toronto Raptors in the 1995 NBA
draft and the 1995-96 rookie of the year.
