Don Casey

Don Casey is a former professional and collegiate basketball coach. He has coached two National Basketball Association (NBA) teams, the Los Angeles Clippers and the New Jersey Nets—each for a season and a half. He had previously coached the Temple Owls from 1973 to 1982. He also worked as an assistant coach with the Chicago Bulls (1982–83) and Boston Celtics (1990–1996).[1][2]

As a young man in the 1960s, Casey coached at Bishop Eustace Preparatory School in Pennsauken, New Jersey. His coaching led to one state championship in 1962, and a runner up position in 1963. Casey coached Bill Melchionni, a high school and college great who eventually played in the pros in the late 1960s with the Philadelphia 76ers.

In his first season as Temple head coach, Don Casey had his team stall with the basketball in the finals of the Volunteer Classic against Tennessee. The final score of the game was Tennessee 11, Temple 6, the lowest scoring major college basketball game since 1938. [3]

As of February 2006, Casey is the vice-chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and As of October 24, 2006, Casey is the head coach of the Hollywood Fame of the American Basketball Association's 21st century incarnation.
