CLEVELAND, June 9 – The Cleveland Cavaliers announced today that Hank Egan has been named by Head Coach Mike Brown as an assistant coach. Egan, 67, has 39 years of coaching experience and been an assistant in the NBA for nine seasons.

“I feel fortunate to have a coach of Hank's caliber join my staff,” Brown said. “He brings great experience to our team. He has coached at all levels and has been a part of many successful teams as both a head coach and a trusted assistant. He was part of San Antonio's staff when they won the NBA Title in 1999 so I'm thrilled to add championship experience to the staff.”

Egan spent the 2002-03 season as an assistant with the Golden State Warriors following eight seasons as an assistant coach with San Antonio. During his time with the Spurs, Egan assisted in leading the Spurs to a 403-221 (.646) record including winning an NBA Championship in 1999. The Spurs won the Midwest Division Title five times and had the NBA’s best record four times during Egan’s tenure in San Antonio.

Egan graduated from the Naval Academy in 1960 and began his coaching career in 1966 as an assistant at the Air Force Academy. He was promoted to head coach in 1971 and spent the next 13 seasons in that role. In 1984, he was named the head coach at the University of San Diego and spent 10 seasons in that position before joining the Spurs in 1994. While head coach at San Diego, Egan coached Brown for two seasons from 1990-92.

Bryant Moore has been hired as a video coordinator. He will work together with current Cavaliers’ video coordinator Betsy McAllister. Moore spent last season as an assistant coach at the University of California, Riverside following four seasons as an assistant coach at Sheldon High School in Elk Grove, CA from 2000-2004.
