A check of the Nets front office directory reveals Sean Sweeney, who's worked as the Nets video coordinator for two years, has been quietly promoted to assistant coach/video. The promotion apparently took place earlier this month. It's one of two recent Nets moves. Charles Klask and Jim Sann switched jobs in late December, with Sann spending more time on the bench and Klask more time on the road. Both are listed as assistant coaches.

The Nets now have eight assistant coaches as well as a strength and conditioning coach. The number includes Lawrence Frank, who was "re-assigned" in December. While he is still listed on the team directory, his responsibilities appear to be limited to "daily reports."

Sweeney, 29, joined the Nets in December 2011 as an assistant video coordinator. He was hired from the University of Northern Iowa, where he had been video coordinator. Prior to that he'd been assistant basketball coach at both Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Cambridge, MN and the University of Arts in San Francisco.

For two years, had been an assistant coach and director of basketball operations at Evansville University in Indiana, where he also taught "Coaching Basketball". He played basketball at St. Thomas University in St. Paul where he was starting point guard and captain of the team. He has written a book, "The 101 Plays of The Playoffs"
