Former NBA coach joins NBC Sports Radio

NBC Sports Radio has hired former NBA coach Stan Van Gundy as a Senior Analyst. Van Gundy will call into network shows each week during the NBA season.

Van Gundy has served as the head coach of the National Basketball Association’s Orlando Magic from 2007 to 2012.

From 2003 to 2005, he was the head coach of the Miami Heat but resigned in 2005 mid-season, turning the job over to Pat Riley. He is the brother of former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy.

The former Magic head coach will talk exclusively to NBC Sports Radio affiliates and co-host for an hour every Friday during the NBA season, on a show soon to be announced.

“I’m thrilled to be joining NBC Sports Radio,” said Van Gundy. “I’m ready to get going and bring my opinions and insight to the national radio audience.”

“Having Stan join NBC Sports Radio is another special day for the network, and it shows the type of exceptional and unique talent and voices that we’re building for our affiliates and advertisers,” Dial Global EVP/GM Chris Corcoran said.

“We are thrilled to add one of the most respected and outspoken coaches in the NBA to the NBC Sports Radio roster,” NBC Sports Ventures SVP Rob Simmelkjaer noted. “Our listeners will get to enjoy Stan’s unique insight into events and storylines around the league on a weekly basis.”
