Coaching Search Update: Sixers To Interview Jay Larranaga

USA TODAY Sports

The 76ers will interview Boston Celtics assistant coach Jay Larranaga, reports Dei Lynam of Comcast SportsNet.

Dei Lynam of Comcast SportsNet is reporting that the 76ers will interview Boston Celtics assistant coach Jay Larranaga.

Larranaga, the son of Jim Larranaga, the head coach of the University of Miami, has been an assistant coach with the Boston Cetlics for one year. Before that, he spent 2 years with the Erie BayHawks of the NBDL, having also spent 2 years coaching the Irish National team.

Larranaga also played overseas, playing in various clubs in Spain, France, Greece, and Italy, while also being a member of the Irish National team as a player.

Larranaga, who just turned 38 this year, was considered to be a candidate for the Boston Celtics head coaching position before it was offered to Brad Stevens. He has been the coach of the Boston Celtics summer league team this season.

The 76ers coaching search has been an odd combination of eerily quiet and inaccurately reported, with Brett Brown (Spurs) having been (reportedly) offered the job, only to later find out that was false. There was then the report that the 76ers were considering hiring Lloyd Pierce of the Memphis Grizzlies, which was later refuted, with the report coming out that the 76ers did not request permission to interview Pierce.

We will have more updates on the 76ers coaching searching when we know more.
