Clark Atlanta had success with its last NBA-player-turned-coach. So much that it had to try again.

The Panthers introduced George Lynch as their men’s basketball coach Monday. Lynch, a 12-year NBA veteran and North Carolina standout, was coaching with the Grand Rapids Drive, the Detroit Pistons’ G-League affiliate, last season.

“It was an honor to take this interview and follow up coach Darrell Walker,” Lynch said. “He’s done a great job at leading the young men and the university. I’d like to continue their success in seeing these young men graduate and follow their dreams. That’s my goal.”
