Former Raptors 905 Head Coach, Stackhouse to Coach at Vanderbilt

While it seemed as though an NBA head coaching job was around the corner before the 2018-19 season began, Jerry Stackhouse is taking his talents to college basketball.

The former Raptors 905 head coach spent the season as an assistant on the Memphis Grizzlies bench. He has now agreed to a six year deal to become the head coach of Vanderbilt University – the Harvard of the South. The 44-year old who played his college basketball at UNC for the Tar Heels, was a head coaching candidate for the Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, and Detroit Pistons just a year ago.

After a successfully and lengthy playing career which included two All-Star appearances, Stackhouse transitioned into coaching after a brief stint as a broadcaster. He got his opportunity with the Raptors. In his second year with the franchise, he was named head coach of the team’s G League affiliate, the 905. He would lead the team to a championship en route to Coach of the Year honours.

Time to get to recruiting, Coach Stack!
