Milton Keynes confirm New coach

Mike New is the new coach of Milton Keynes Lions, the club have confirmed.

The veteran American, who was previously a player-assistant before hanging up his boots at the end of the BBL season, succeeds Vince Macaulay in the role.

New, who initially came to Britain when he signed for Newcastle after a year-long stint in Japan, played for several UK teams including Manchester and Edinburgh before finishing his playing career with the Lions.

Macaulay added "Mike knows what we are about as a club, he buys into our systems and has helped in many areas of the club, it was he who knocked down the two free throws that clinched us the BBL Cup in 2008 so he is already a legend with many of our fans"
