MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks added Chad Forcier to the coaching staff Tuesday. The new assistant coach has 23 years of coaching experience in the NBA.

Prior to coming to Milwaukee, Forcier was an assistant coach with the Memphis Grizzlies for the 2018-19 season. He's served as an assistant coach with Orlando Magic for two seasons and spent nine seasons with the San Antonio Spurs.

Forcier worked with current Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer in San Antonio from 2007-13.

“I’m thrilled to have Chad join our staff and to work with him once again,” said Budenholzer. “Chad is an experienced NBA coach who excels in player development and teaching the game. He will be a great addition to the coaching staff and will have a major impact on the team. It’s a pleasure to welcome Chad to the Bucks.”

Forcier was part of the Spurs team that won an NBA Championship in 2014. He has reached the NBA Conference Finals five times with three different teams. In his nine seasons with the Spurs, the team won at least 50 games every season.
