It was announced yesterday that the Oklahoma City Thunder have added two new assistant coaches to their staff.
There was an opening as Maurice Cheeks left earlier this summer to take the head coaching job with the Detroit Pistons.
The Oklahoma City Thunder has named Robert Pack and Mike Terpstra as assistant coaches, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. They join Rex Kalamian, Mark Bryant and Brian Keefe on Head Coach Scott Brooks’ bench.
“We’re excited to add Robert and Mike to our coaching staff for the upcoming season,” said Head Coach Scott Brooks. “These additions bring diverse backgrounds to our group that will help the further development of our players.”
Pack was an assistant for the Los Angeles Clippers the last three seasons and with the New Orleans Hornets for a season before that.
Pack played 13 years in the NBA for six different teams. He averaged 8.9 points, 4.6 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game over his career.
Pack was on that 1994 Denver Nuggets team that upset the top seed Seattle Supersonics in one of the biggest upsets in playoff history.
Terpstra has been coaching for over 20 years at a variety of different levels ranging from high school to college to the NBA D-League.
