BOSTON — The Boston Celtics have hired Darren Erman, a former development coach for them, as the team's director of NBA scouting.
Yahoo Sports! was the first to report the hiring.
Erman became available after the Golden State Warriors fired him earlier this month after two-plus seasons, for reportedly taping conversations involving his fellow Golden State assistants.
His dismissal came shortly after another assistant coach, former Celtic player Brian Scalabrine, was demoted to the team's D-League affiliate.
Erman spent four seasons in Boston as a coaching assistant under then-head coach Doc Rivers (2007-2011).
