  • Raptors assistant Nurse promoted to head coach

He joined the Raptors organization in 2013 and has served as an assistant on the staff alongside Dwane Casey since then. Adrian Wojnarowski reported shortly after that the Raptors are hiring Nurse, so consider it done. So, their final two candidates were current assistant coach Nick Nurse and Spurs assistant Ettore Messina.

Toronto has chose to promote Dwane Casey's old assistant, and will hire Nick Nurse as the team's ninth head coach in franchise history according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Nurse has spent the past five seasons as an assistant coach with the Raptors under Casey.


Nurse came to Toronto fresh off of a NBA Development League championship with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and also won a league championship with Iowa, a D-League coach of the year award and worked extensively in Britain. Toronto also took the third-most threes in the league, up from 22nd place two seasons ago.

Ujiri called the decision to fire Casey "difficult but necessary" following the Raptors' loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round, the third time in as many years they've been eliminated at the hands of LeBron James and the Cavs.

Nick Nurse, head coach of the Iowa Energy, thanks the fans following the team's game against the Tulsa 66ers at the Wells Fargo Arena on April 18, 2011 in Des Moines, Iowa. "I know where we started".
