The Milwaukee Bucks finally did what many have speculated for over a week and finalized their hire of Adrian Griffin as its new head coach.
ESPN broke the news on Memorial Day weekend that the Bucks had begun negotiating with Griffin on a multiyear contract.
Griffin had been one of Nick Nurse's top assistants on his Toronto Raptors staff before Nurse was shown the door during the season. He is no stranger to the NBA's Central division, having served on staffs with Scott Skiles and Tom Thibodeau with the Chicago Bulls, current Bulls coach Billy Donovan during his stint with Oklahoma City, and Nurse. Griffin also started his coaching career with the Bucks in 2008 after his nine-year playing career was over.
No contract details have been reported. Griffin will be formally introduced to the media by the team at 11 a.m. on Tuesday at a press conference.
