Phoenix Suns Hire First European Born Head Coach in NBA History

The Phoenix Suns coaching search has officially come to an end.

On Wednesday, the team announced that they will hire Igor Kokoskov as their new head coach. Kokoskov is currently an assistant under Quin Snyder over with the Utah Jazz who are in the midst of an entertaining Conference Semifinals series with the Houston Rockets. Kokoskov will join the Suns at the conclusion of Utah’s playoff run.

“We are thrilled to bring Valley resident Igor Kokoskov back to Arizona as head coach of the Phoenix Suns,” said General Manager Ryan McDonough. “Igor has been a pioneer throughout his basketball career and he brings a wealth of high level coaching experience to our club. He was one of the first non-American born assistant coaches at both the NCAA and NBA levels and his most recent head coaching stint includes leading the Slovenian national team to the 2017 EuroBasket title, which was the first European title in the history of the country. Igor’s teams have always had a player development focus, a creative style of play and a track record of success.”

With the hiring, the Serbian-native Kokoskov becomes the first European born head coach in NBA history.
