The Cleveland Cavaliers will not renew the contracts of assistant coach Jim Boylan and player development coach Phil Handy, according to a report from ESPN.
The Cavs will promote Dan Geriot to a full-time assistant coach and Damon Jones will assume a more robust assistant coaching role, per the report.
Boylan has been with the Cavs since 2013. He’s been an assistant coach in the NBA since 1993 and served as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks (2013-14) and Chicago Bulls (2007-08), compiling a 46-60 record.
Handy was hired by the Cavs in 2015. He was particularly close with Kyrie Irving, the former point guard traded to the Boston Celtics almost a year ago.
The Cavs also lost assistant Vitaly Potapenko to the Memphis Grizzlies last week.
