Original title: 76ers officially announced Doug Rivers as the team's new coach
Beijing time, October 4th, today, the Philadelphia 76ers updated their official Twitter, officially announcing Doug Rivers as the team's new coach.
According to previous reports, the 76ers and Rivers signed a five-year contract agreement.
Rivers has served as the head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers for seven seasons, with a regular season record of 356 wins and 208 losses. But in the second round of this year's playoffs after being overturned 3-1 by the Nuggets, Rivers was fired.
According to media statistics, in the past 13 seasons, the teams that Rivers coached have all won more than less, and are the coach with the longest retention time among active coaches. In the first season of his coaching career in 1999-2000, Rivers won the title of best coach in the Magic. In the 2007-2008 season, he led the Celtics to win.
