BOSTON – The Maine Red Claws will have a new man in charge this season as Scott Morrison is set to become the team's new head coach.
He replaces Mike Taylor who amassed a 45-55 record in two seasons with the Red Claws, the Development League affiliate of the Boston Celtics.
Morrison was a scout and assistant coach with the Red Claws last season.
He also spent 10 seasons as the head coach at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, finishing with a record of 185-174 which included winning the Ontario University Athletics men’s basketball championship in 2012 along with a second-place finish in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport men’s basketball championship in 2013.
“Despite the sadness I will feel when I leave Lakehead, it’s a major step in the direction of a place I have dreamed of since I was a small child," Morrison said. "I’m excited for the new challenges as well as the chance to walk the same court as some of the greatest players and coaches of all time."
