Rockets Will Meet With Joerger Today, Hunt This Weekend

FOX 26’s Mark Berman has the latest on the Rockets’ assistant coaching search: Grizzlies assistant David Joerger will be in town today to interview for the lead assistant role to new head coach Kevin McHale, and following him through the door will be Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt this weekend.

Joerger is presumed to be the favorite for the job, though as we all know, presumptive favorites mean little when it comes to the Rockets and coaches. Hunt, an ex-Rockets scout, might not be up for the same “lead” assistant position as Joerger. Rio Grande Vipers head coach Chris Finch is expected to be one of the names on new head coach Kevin McHale’s staff, but the other names are still unknown.

McHale will meet with the press at 10 A.M. CST on Friday to discuss the job with the Houston media. We’ll have an abbreviated transcript up as soon as possible, and you can follow along live at Rockets.com.
