The Portland Pilots have hired former NBA player Terry Porter as the team’s head coach, the school announced.
After playing 17 years in the NBA, Porter served as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks from 2003 to ’05 and the Phoenix Suns from 2008 to ’09. He was also an assistant for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons.
Porter is familiar with the neighborhood as he played 10 seasons for the Portland Trail Blazers in his career. Former Trail Blazers Michael Holton and Larry Steele have also coached the Pilots.
He will take over for Eric Reveno, who served as the Pilots head coach for 10 years and finished with a 140–178 record.
An official introduction is scheduled for Tuesday.
