Tim Duncan becomes assistant coach with Spurs

Tim Duncan

Tim Duncan is returning to a more active role with the San Antonio Spurs.

The team announced Monday that Duncan, the franchise’s best-ever player, will join Gregg Popovich’s staff as an assistant coach next season.

In a statement announcing the hiring, Popovich contributed a typically hilarious quote about Duncan’s return.

Duncan retired in 2016 and has remained with the Spurs in a behind-the-scenes role, but this will put him back on the bench at Popovich’s side. At the time of his retirement, Popovich offered Duncan free reign to coach in whatever capacity he wanted, and now he’s getting a more prominent spot in the organization.
