The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that Jeff Capel has joined Doug Collins’ staff as an assistant coach. Capel was previously an assistant coach with the Charlotte Bobcats, a position he held since their inaugural season in 2004-05.

In his last full season with Charlotte in 2009-10, Capel was a member of Larry Brown’s staff and helped guide the Bobcats to a franchise-record 44 wins and their first playoff appearance. That season, Charlotte led the league in fewest points allowed and ranked sixth in opponent’s field goal percentage.

Prior to joining the Bobcats, Capel was head coach of the Fayetteville Patriots of the NBA Development League and guided the team to the D-League Finals in his first full season in 2002-03.
