PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Trail Blazers have hired Terry Stotts as head coach.
The move announced Tuesday by Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey fills the NBA's last coaching vacancy.
The 54-year-old Stotts had a 115-168 record as coach of the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks before spending the past four seasons as an assistant with the Dallas Mavericks.
Olshey said in a news release that Stotts "is one of the elite offensive minds in the NBA," and played a key role in helping the Mavericks to the 2011 NBA championship.
Stotts replaces Kaleb Canales, who had the job on an interim basis after Nate McMillan was fired in the middle of last season's losing campaign.
