Hello Sports World,

We just heard of some news happening this WEDNESDAY MAY 26, 2010 at UC Irvine.В  The Sports Business Association at UC Irvine will be hosting its first event of the quarter featuring former NBA Coach Russell Turner.

Russell Turner was named men’s basketball coach at UC Irvine Friday, April 9 2010. He has served the past six seasons as an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association and also has held positions at Stanford University and Wake Forest University.

Turner’s numerous responsibilities under head coach Don Nelson at Golden State have included assisting with game planning, analyzing opponent tendencies and individual player skill development.

He has also served for five seasons as a coach for the Warriors’ summer-league entry in Las Vegas. He has participated actively in the NBA’s international outreach camps, including Basketball Without Borders, representing the league in Turkey, China and Lithuania. BWB uses basketball to create positive social change in education, health and wellness.

Listen to what he has to say about how to pursue a career in the sports industry; learn from his experiences working with the Golden State Warriors, Wake Forest, and Stanford; and come ready to ask him questions on how he will be rebuilding the UC Irvine Men’s Basketball program!
