Nurse To Become New Raptors Coach

The Toronto Raptors are assistant Nick Nurse to become the franchise’s new head coach.

Nurse is finalizing contract terms with Toronto but met with president Masai Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster on Tuesday morning to accept the job, sources said.

Nurse, 50, replaces Dwane Casey, whom he worked under for the past five seasons. Nurse has six seasons of head-coaching experience in the NBA G League, where he won two championships and a coach of the year award.  The Carroll native played his college ball at U-N-I from 1985-1989.
