Rasheed Wallace was hired as the head basketball coach at Jordan High School in Durham, North Carolina.
Wallace, who was an assistant for the Detroit Pistons during the 2013-14 season, turned down NBA assistant job offers to go back to high school.
"Yeah, the money was good or whatever, but it's not about the money for me. It's about knowledge. Knowledge definitely should be free. It doesn't cost anything to pass that knowledge on to all the young men here. It's also my neighborhood school. I'm in the neighborhood. I'm in the community. So that's why it's definitely going to be important for me and the gentlemen to do community work," said Wallace.
