Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The Indiana named Brian Winters its new head coach on Thursday. Winters, a two-time all-star while playing with the Milwaukee Bucks and most recently the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, assumes coaching duties vacated in September by Nell Fortner. Winters has 24 years of coaching experience in the NBA as a head and assistant coach.

"Brian brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to our franchise," Chief Operating Office Kelly Krauskopf said. "Not only was he a tremendous player, he also has coached alongside some of the most respected coaches in the game."

Winters began his coaching career as a college assistant at Princeton under the legendary Pete Carril before leaving for nine pro seasons in Cleveland (1986-93) and Atlanta (1993-95).

The Queens, New York native began his own head coaching resume in 1995, when he was chosen to guide the NBA's expansion Vancouver Grizzlies. He was named the Warriors head coach in December 2001.
