The Austin Spurs have hired Blake Ahearn as head coach.
“It's unbelievable. It's the best organization in the world in my mind,” Ahearn said. “I'm humbled and honored.”
Ahearn spent the past few seasons coaching high school after retiring as a player eight years ago.
Ahearn played in Spain, Italy, Ukraine and Puerto Rico. He bounced between several D-League and NBA organizations.
“I wasn't looking for anything like this,” Ahearn said. “Now, I'm going to the Spurs. It's crazy.”
