Boston Celtics Add Jay Larranaga As Assistant Coach

The Boston Celtics announced on Wednesday that the team has added Jay Larranaga as an assistant coach.

The 36-year-old has spent the last two seasons as the head man of the Erie Bayhawks of the NBA Development League and has led the team to a 60-40 record over that span with consecutive playoff berths. In addition, Larranaga has also coached the Irish national team as well as serving as an assistant at Cornell.

Prior to becoming a coach, Larranaga played professionally in Spain, Italy, Greece and France. He also played for Bowling Green State University and holds the school's record for most three-pointers made in a single game with nine.

He is the son of University of Miami head coach Jim Larranaga, who led George Mason to the 2006 Final Four.
