Great Britain assistant coach Nick Nurse has joined the University of Iowa today as Assistant Coach.
The ex-Manchester and London boss will step down as head coach of the NBA D-League's Iowa Energy after being tempted by a reunion with former college team-mate, Cyclone coach Greg McDermott.
“This is the perfect opportunity to broaden my experience in the college game,” said Nurse in a statement. “I loved my time in professional basketball, especially with the Energy.”
Before coaching the Energy, Nurse spent nine years coaching four teams in the British Basketball League, as well as a stint in Belgium.
He is expected to remain with the GB programme for this summer's Eurobasket.
