Rivers will only coach Clippers going forward

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

In 2013, the Los Angeles Clippers hired Doc Rivers as head coach and President of Basketball Operations from the Boston Celtics. Frank and Rivers enjoy a strong personal and professional relationship, which has allowed for them to cement a shared vision on the franchise's future. "He is key to integrating our new players with our returning players and taking us to new heights on the court".

Rivers hired Frank a year ago as executive vice president of basketball operations.

Now he has been freed of his front office role, which will give him a chance to put more time and effort into his primary role of coaching. As the owner of the Clippers for three years, Ballmer said he understood that running a franchise and coaching are two enormous and different jobs and should not be performed by one person. Coach Rivers has a career.579 winning percentage and hasn't missed the playoffs since 2007; GM Rivers is best known for repeatedly wasting his team's limited cap space on mediocre-to-useless bench players. "There needs to be a healthy discussion and debate with two strong, independent-minded people".


"Doc put Lawrence in charge of the non-coaching aspects of the front office a year ago, and he's done a fantastic job", Ballmer said. Doc put Lawrence in charge of the non-coaching aspects of the front office previous year, and he's done a fantastic job. "Lawrence has come on so strong in that role, and that has helped us go down this path". They lost Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets but managed to re-sign Blake Griffin.

Los Angeles Clippers Coach Doc Rivers will no longer run the team's front office. Frank is a two-time head coach with the New Jersey (now Brooklyn) Nets and the Detroit Pistons.

Doc Rivers will have a little less on his plate this season. He was head coach of the Orlando Magic for five years before landing with Boston, where he guided the Celtics to an National Basketball Association title in 2008. He signed a five-year, $50 million extension in 2014 in that dual role that will continue to be honored, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.
