Vance Walberg will be an official assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets for the 12-13 NBA season.

Walberg spent a lot of time around the Nuggets last season in an informal capacity.

Walberg is the creator of the dribble-drive offense, most notably used by John Calipari.

The Nuggets used Walberg's dribble-drive offense in approximately 50 percent of their offense last season.

The Nuggets had a opening after Jesse Mermuys left for Houston.

Walberg was previously head coach at Pepperdine.
