Sixers officially name remainder of coaching staff


As expected, the 76ers announced yesterday that Michael Curry, Brian James and Quin Snyder will assist head coach Doug Collins in his first year with the team. Collins had already announced that Aaron McKie would be one of his assistants.

Curry, who was given the title associate coach, was the head coach of the Detroit Pistons during the 2008-09 season, leading them to the playoffs that year. He was an assistant coach for the team the prior seasons. He played 11 seasons in the NBA, including a 10-game stint with the Sixers in 1993. He played for Collins in Detroit in 1995-96.

James has been coaching in the NBA for 11 seasons, including stints as Collins' assistant in both Detroit and Washington, and Snyder most recently coached the Austin Toros in the NBA D-League for three seasons after a seven-year stint at the University of Missouri.

McKie will be entering his fourth season as an assistant with the Sixers.
