The Philadelphia 76ers will hire San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown as their new head coach, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
The 76ers have not confirmed the report.
Brown has worked as a Spurs assistant under Gregg Popovich for seven years. He had been the Spurs player development coach prior to that.
Before joining the Spurs, Brown was a head coach for nine years in the Australasia National Basketball League. Brown was the head coach of the Australian national team and led the Aussies to a seventh-place finish in the 2012 London Olympic Games.
