Snyder joins 76ers


According to TNT’s David Aldridge, Quin Synder has been hired by the Philadelphia 76ers to head their player development.

Synder coached the San Antonio Spurs’ developmental league affiliate, Austin Toros, for the past three seasons.

The Philadelphia 76ers plan to bolster their player development side under new coach Doug Collins by bringing in former University of Missouri coach Quin Snyder to head that position, according to league sources.

The 43-year-old Snyder has spent the last three years as the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs’ D-League team, the Austin Toros, where he’s helped develop players like guard Alonzo Gee, who was named the D-League’s Rookie of the Year this past season, and center Ian Mahinmi, the Spurs’ 2007 first-round pick.
