Lakers Rumors: Dan D’Antoni To Coach Marshall Thundering Herd

NBA Summer League in Las Vegas

Last month, Marshall University reportedly reached out to current Los Angeles Lakers head coach and former alumni, Mike D’Antoni about its open head coaching position. With D’Antoni still under contract, Marshall University has decided to move in a different direction.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, the Thundering Herd have decided to hire Lakers assistant coach, Dan D’Antoni:

The Marshall Thundering Herd will fill their coaching vacancy with NBA assistant Dan D’Antoni, multiple sources told ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman on Thursday.

Dan, the older brother of Mike D’Antoni, has served as an assistant coach with the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers. Like his brother, Dan also played at Marshall where he averaged 17.5 points as a junior in the late 1960′s.

With his brother returning to West Virginia, the Lakers have not met with D’Antoni to discuss his future as the head coach. While there have been conflicting reports, GM Mitch Kupchak stated recently that the team will take a couple weeks off before evaluating the season.
