Tyronn Lue Agrees To Become Next Clippers Coach


Nebraska basketball legend Tyronn Lue has agreed to become the next coach of the Los Angeles Clippers. A person with knowledge of the situation says the final terms are still being worked on.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no contract had been signed.

Lue will replace Doc Rivers, who had coached the Clippers for the last seven seasons.

Lue was on Rivers’ staff this season when the Clippers wasted a 3-1 lead over Denver and lost in the Western Conference semifinals.
