Liberty Ballers' Jake Fischer reports the Milwaukee Bucks have hired Sixers assistant coach Greg Foster as a full Assistant Coach, a promotion from his player development role in Philadelphia. Foster worked closely with the Sixers' big men, particularly with 2013 first-round pick Nerlens Noel.
Foster, who stands at 6'11", joined the 76ers last September after three years as an assistant at his alma mater, UTEP. The 44 year old had a 13-year NBA career, some of his most memorable moments coming while playing with John Stockton and Karl Malone from 1995-1999. His career highlight came against the Sixers in 2001 as he won the NBA Championship as a member of the Lakers.
Foster had never coached above the NCAA level before joining Brett Brown's staff last year.
