The Boston Celtics have hired Jarell Christian to be the next head coach of their G League developmental affiliate, the (Portland) Maine Celtics (formerly, the Maine Red Claws) according to HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto.

The new G League coach was most recently an assistant coach with the Washington Wizards between 2019 and 2021, and joins a rebranded, rebooted Celtics developmental team that took that 2020-21 G League season off as a result of the pandemic. Christian, 35, has previous G League head coaching experience with the Capital City Go Gos, the Wizards G League affiliate, which he coached for a season before joining the Wizards’ staff as an assistant.

Prior to that, the Virginia native served as an assistant with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s developmental team, the Blue.

Christian also played college basketball at Emory and Henry College.
