Foster added to Bucks coaching staff
As OnMilwaukee.com's Jeff Sherman tweeted last night, former NBA player Greg Foster is indeed returning to the Milwaukee Bucks as an assistant coach under Jason Kidd.
Foster was a player development coach with the Philadelphia 76ers last season, and earlier today CSNPhilly.com reported that Foster is earning a promotion by joining the Bucks as a full assistant.
Philadelphia president and general manager Sam Hinkie told CSNPhilly.com that "We hate to lose him, but we don't want to stand in the way of people when opportunities present themselves."
A source close to the situation in Milwaukee confirmed Foster is now on staff.
Greg Foster to #Bucks as an assistant. Like it! Son's in high school. To play in area, I hear. Welcome back to MKE, Fosters!— Jeff Sherman (@ShermanJeff) July 31, 2014
Foster retired from the NBA after 13 seasons in 2003, two of which were spent in Milwaukee (1993-94, 2001-02). He won a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2001 and played in two other NBA Finals while with the Utah Jazz.
Prior to joining the 76ers, Foster spent three seasons at the University of Texas-El Paso, the first of which was as a student assistant coach while he finished his bachelor's degree.
Foster joins a staff that already includes Sean Sweeney, Eric Hughes and Joe Prunty, who served under Kidd in Brooklyn last year.
