Joe Prunty

There’s 30 great coaches in this league, and Joe is one of them. The stuff Joe runs on offense, the ATOs (after timeout plays), they’re one of the best in the league. The coaches in this league are so-o-o-o good. And I’ve learned a ton from watching him [Prunty] coach his team this year. I think he’s done an incredible job. He puts those guys in positions to succeed. As coaches, we’re all trying to do that, and he does a great job of it... Joe’s a great coach, and he’s been doing it a long time.
Boston Celtics
Brad Stevens
NBA Head Coach
He was the head of our film crew at the time and just starting out. Whatever I needed Joe found it for me. He was unbelievable. a real workhorse, but somebody who understood what I wanted and how to find it and somebody that I depended on to talk to before games... he was very valuable to me.
San Antonio Spurs
Gregg Popovich
President & Head Coach
I met Joe 12 years ago when I first went to the NBA with the Spurs. He too, was the Video Coordinator of the San Antonio Spurs in 1999, when I first came into the league. So, I've known him for a very long time. He's had a taste of international experience coaching with Great Britain and he is a great person. He has a fantastic family. He is a committed basketball coach. He's been around a lot. He's been in the league a lot. He's very thorough. He's very organized with what he does. And I think the team will be very well managed. I think the team will handle situations well. They will have a purpose - not saying they didn't before, that's not true. I feel like he's ready for this opportunity and I think he has historically when he's been a head coach, done a really good job.

Brett Brown
