Former Lakehead Coach Scott Morrison Named Celtics Assistant for 2017-18

It was announced on Tuesday morning that former Lakehead coach and Morell, P.E.I native Scott Morrison, will make the jump from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA D-League (Re-named G-League as of today) and join the Boston Celtics staff full-time next season in an assistant capacity.

“Coach Stevens and I had a chat after the season was over and he let me know they were going to keep me in Boston full time next year. Roles and things like that still to be determined, the journey I suppose you could say from the [developmental] league to the NBA seems to be finished, at least for the time being.” said Morrison to the CBC earlier today.

Morrison remains relevant in U Sports circles as he was the man to turn Lakehead basketball into a national powerhouse from 2009-2013, as he led the Thunderwolves to a 117-39 record, including four straight trips to the Final 8, an appearance in the national title game in 2013 and an OUA championship in 2011.

Over the past three seasons, Morrison became the winningest coach in Red Claws history, posting a 95-55 record after finishing 1st in the Atlantic Division this season at 29-21. New McMaster coach Patrick Tatham was also on his staff this past season.
