Glen “Big Baby” Davis has officially returned to basketball as a [checks notes] … head coach.

The Charlotte Purple Jackets announced on Friday that they have hired the former NBA big man Davis to be their next head coach. The Purple Jackets are a team in The Basketball League, an independent professional league that goes by “TBL” for short.

Davis, now 37, played in the NBA for eight seasons (including winning a championship with the Boston Celtics in 2008) but has no prior coaching experience. Since his NBA career ended, Davis has had a number of legal troubles, including an arrest and indictment in a high-profile fraud case. After being released on bail, Davis then found a pretty ridiculous way to violate the terms of his bail agreement.

The former LSU star Davis will now attempt to rehabilitate his image as a coach in The Basketball League. We also recently saw another ex-NBA player working TBL games as a referee.
