Thunder add two new coaches to staff

The Thunder have named Robert Pack and Mike Terpstra as assistant coaches for the upcoming season.

“We’re excited to add Robert and Mike to our coaching staff for the upcoming season,” said coach Scott Brooks. “These additions bring diverse backgrounds to our group that will help the further development of our players.”

Pack has spent the past three seasons coaching with the Clippers. He also coached a year with the New Orleans franchise. He also played 13 seasons in the NBA where he averaged 8.9 points per game.

Terpstra has been involved with the game for more than 20 years. He has worked in various capacities at the college, junior college and high school levels, with additional experience in the NBA Development League and the CBA. After spending the 2005-06 season as an assistant coach/director of player development with the Idaho Stampede of the CBA, Terpstra spent one season working with the coaching staff of the Colorado 14ers of the NBA Development League.

The Thunder lost assistant coach Mo Cheeks after the season. He left to take the head coaching job with the Detroit Pistons.
