Brooklyn Nets Fire Head Coach Steve Nash

The Brooklyn Nets and head coach Steve Nash have “agreed to part ways.” Nash, a FIBA and Basketball Hall of Famer, as well as a two-time NBA MVP as a player, was hired by the Nets in 2020, taking on the head coaching role without prior coaching experience.”

A very heartfelt thanks to Nets owners Joe and Clara Tsai along with general manager Sean Marks for giving me the opportunity to coach the Brooklyn Nets,” Nash said in his official statement.

 “It was an amazing experience with many challenges that I’m incredibly grateful for.”

“It was a pleasure to work with the players, performance team and front office everyday. 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.”
