The Portland Trail Blazers hired Terry Stotts as head coach on Tuesday.
Stotts has spent the previous four seasons as an assistant with the Dallas Mavericks. Scott's first head coaching job in the NBA came in 2002 when he replaced Lon Kruger, and coached the Atlanta Hawks to a 52-85 record. He went on to become an assistant with Golden State before getting his second chance as a head coach with Milwaukee in 2005. He took the Bucks to the playoffs in 2006, but was fired in 2007.
Stotts has a 114-158 career head coaching record.
Stotts, 54, replaces interim coach Kaleb Canales and previous head coach Nate McMilan, who was fired.
"I'm very pleased to be part of a great franchise in a beautiful city with such a proud history," Stotts said in a news release. "I look forward to working hard with Neil and our players toward the ultimate goal of bringing another championship to Portland."
