Reno Bighorns to announce hiring of Musselman

SAN FRANCISCO – Eric Musselman is finally getting another chance to coach: in the NBA’s Development League.

The former Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings head coach is set to be formally introduced by the Reno Bighorns in a news conference Thursday. The Reno team is affiliated with both the Kings and Warriors.

The 45-year-old Musselman just finished coaching the class of 2011 to-be college players at the Adidas Nations camp in Chicago. He also has been working in television and as a scout in recent seasons, though he has expressed interest in returning to coaching. He shared the news of his new job in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

The Kings fired Musselman in April 2007 after a 33-49 season. He led the Warriors to two surprisingly successful seasons from 2002-04.
