“It was a pleasure to work with the players, performance team, and front office every day,” he added. “I’m especially grateful to my coaching staff and video room who are a talented group with so much character and professionalism.”
“Lastly, thanks to Brooklyn and the passionate fans who support this team. Family first and my family has found a home here and LOVES being a part of this beautiful community. I wish the Nets all the success in the world and the Nash’s will be rooting for our team as they turn this season around.”

Jacque Vaughn will serve as interim head coach starting Tuesday night against the Chicago Bulls.
