The San Antonio Spurs have added former Spurs’ player Jacque Vaughn to the coaching staff:
“We are thrilled to welcome Jacque back to the Spurs family,” said Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich. “The same attributes that made him the ultimate pro as a player will make him an outstanding coach. He has a great work ethic, is very intelligent and has an extremely high basketball IQ. He’ll be a wonderful addition to our coaching staff.”
Vaughn was always considered a player most likely to become a coach in the NBA. He often sat near the coaching staff on the bench during his playing days in San Antonio. He also was the head coach for the Spurs’ 2010 Summer League team.
