Nick Nurse

Nick Nurse - Assistant Coach

Nurse enters his third season this year as assistant coach for GB under Head Coach, Chris Finch.

Although he has been hugely successful with the Standard Life GB team, helping the side reach the EuroBasket Finals in 2011, he has a real niche in NBA D-League basketball.

He previously coached the Iowa Energy and took them to the championship title spot, defeating GB Head Coach, Chris Finch's Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the process. Nurse has now taken the reigns at the Vipers with Finch leaving the role to take up a position at NBA side, the Houston Rockets.

Rio Grande Valley is the Houston Rockets affiliate D-League side which sees Finch and Nurse continue to work closely together away from GB duties.

Previously Nurse coached for 10 years in Europe mostly in Britain where his teams captured nine championships in all competitions in the BBL. He has also been an assistant for the Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns and Chicago Bulls summer league teams.
