Report: 76ers To Add Greg Foster To Coaching Staff

The 76ers have reportedly hired Greg Foster, the former big man who most recently has been an assistant with UTEP.

The 76ers have reportedly hired Greg Foster to be on the coaching staff, reports Anthony Salom of SBNation's Miner Rush.

According to Salom, Foster's title is not yet known, but it is apparently a done deal.

According to sources close to the program, UTEP assistant coach Greg Foster has reportedly been offered a job by the Philadelphia 76ers, and he has accepted the position. His official title isn't known at this point, but it is apparently a done deal.

Foster capped off a 13 year NBA career in 2003, having played for the Washington Bullets, Atlanta Hawks, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago Bulls, Utah Jazz, Seattle Supersonics, Los Angeles Lakers, and Toronto Raptors.

I have confirmed with multiple sources that Foster will be added to the Sixers coaching staff.

After playing his first two years of his college career at UCLA, Foster transferred to UTEP to finish his final two years before becoming the 35th pick in the 1990 NBA draft.

Foster has been with UTEP in a coaching capacity since the 2010-2011 season, when Tim Floyd took over the program.  He started off as a graduate assistant and was promoted to assistant coach for the 2011-2012 season.

Foster is the third member of Brett Brown's coaching staff to be hired, following Chad Iske and Lloyd Pierce.  Brown and general manager Sam Hinkie decided to part ways with former assistant coaches Michael Curry, Aaron McKie, and Jeff Capel last month.
