Marks to join Spurs coaching staff
Former Spurs center and current front office member Sean Marks will reportedly slide into a new role this season, joining Gregg Popovich’s coaching staff to fill the slot left by Brett Brown.

Marks, 38, has been with the Spurs in an executive capacity for the past two seasons, most recently serving as director of basketball operations and general manager of their D-League affiliate, the Austin Toros. The new gig will surely allow Marks to maintain his role as Tim Duncan’s pre-game workout partner.

Marks played 48 games for the Spurs from 2005 through 2007. They were one of six teams the good-natured New Zealand native played for over 11 NBA seasons, during which he averaged 2.8 points per game.

Brown left to take over as head coach in Philadelphia, the second defection of the summer after lead assistant Mike Budenholzer accepted the No. 1 job in Atlanta. Former Indiana assistant Jim Boylen filled the latter vacancy, making Ime Udoka the dean of Popovich’s support staff in his second year with the Spurs.

So who is the lead assistant coach, Udoka or Boylen?

I'm thinking Boylen, he has a lot more experience as an assistant coach than Udoka

I think that that is how it is done. When P J Carlisimo joined the staff, he took over games when Pop got bounced even though Coach Bud had been with the Spurs more years.

I like these guys, but you really have to question the staff given the inexperience of some of these guys on the sideline. Fortunately we've got enough experience on the court to make up for it.
