The Brooklyn Nets have named Hall of Fame guard Steve Nash as their next head coach, the team announced Thursday.

Nash signed a four-year contract, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Jacque Vaughn, who took over coaching duties on an interim basis after Kenny Atkinson’s dismissal, will remain with the club as Nash’s lead assistant.

The Nets are Nash’s first foray into coaching following an 18-year career that ended in 2014.
