Mike Longabardi, who has been affiliated with the Celtics in various roles since 2007-08, was promoted to a bench assistant coach today.
“I’m looking forward to adding Mike to our bench. He has been in the fold the last four years and he’s more than ready for the next step,” said Doc Rivers.
It’s unclear whether Longabardi will become Doc’s lead assistant, but Doc holds Longabardi in high regard. Longabardi was previously rumored to be a candidate for the position vacated by Lawrence Frank, a position which Larry Brown is also rumored to have interest in.
