Celtics Add Assistant Coach

ESPN Boston
On the same day former top assistant Lawrence Frank was formally introduced as head coach of the Detroit Pistons, the Boston Celtics wasted little time officially promoting Mike Longabardi to bench assistant.

"I'm looking forward to adding Mike to our bench," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. "He has been in the fold the last four years and he's more than ready for the next step."

It's not immediately clear if Longabardi will be the top assistant, but he'll nevertheless join Kevin Eastman and Armond Hill as Boston's bench staff.

Here's Longabardi's bio courtesy of the team:
Longabardi joined the Celtics prior to the start of the 2007-08 season from Houston where he had worked for the previous five seasons as an assistant coach/video coordinator, video coordinator and assistant video coordinator. The native of Brooklyn, New York has also previous coaching experience in the college ranks with Pfeiffer University, Adelphi University, Lafayette College and Towson University. He was on the coaching staff that led the Lafayette Leopards to the Patriot League title.
Congrats to Longabardi. Pretty impressive to become a NBA assistant at the young age of 38.
