After letting go of big man coach Roy Rogers and losing lead assistant Lawrence Frank, the Celtics stayed in-house to fill gaps in their coaching staff, promoting Mike Longabardi to a bench assistant.

From the press release:

The Boston Celtics announced today that Mike Longabardi has been promoted to a bench assistant coach. "I'm looking forward to adding Mike to our bench. He has been in the fold the last four years and he's more than ready for the next step," said Doc Rivers, Celtics Head Coach.

Longabardi joined the Celtics prior to the start of the 2007-08 season from Houston where he had worked for the previous five seasons as an assistant coach/video coordinator, video coordinator and assistant video coordinator. The native of Brooklyn, New York has also previous coaching experience in the college ranks with Pfeiffer University, Adelphi University, Lafayette College and Towson University. He was on the coaching staff that led the Lafayette Leopards to the Patriot League title.
