The Memphis Grizzlies continue to search for a head coach nearly two months after parting ways with J.B. Bickerstaff.

The Grizzlies are considering a new bench model in which at least one assistant coach holds a dual title that includes some personnel responsibilities. 

It would be highly unusual for an assistant coach to report to the front office in an official capacity while also reporting to the head coach. There have been issues in the past with some teams in which assistant coaches are believed to act as moles for the front office.
