Frank Lands in Boston

New, comments

The Nets wanted Tom Thibodeau to replace Lawrence Frank on the sidelines but are happy to have Avery Johnson running their show.  Lawrence Frank wanted a head coaching job but is happy to be replacing Tom Thibodeau in Boston, being named a Celtic assistant coach Thursday.

“I think it’s a good situation for me – I wanted to get back and coach, and I didn’t want to sit and wait, and you can’t ask for a better situation or a better organization,” Frank said.

Frank was fired by the Nets after an injury-riddled 0-16 start in New Jersey last season, being replaced by Kiki Vandeweghe.  Vandeweghe is also in the hunt for a new job, being one of the finalists to replace Kevin Pritchard in Portland.
