James Borrego and Hornets owner Michael Jordan made history this week. The Spurs assistant will be the first Latino NBA head coach.
Spurs assistant coach James Borrego not only landed his first full-time head-coaching job on Tuesday, he made NBA history.
The AP is reporting that Charlotte owner Michael Jordan has completed a deal to hire Borrego as the Hornets’ new coach.
Once Borrego signs his contract, he will become the first Hispanic full-time head coach in NBA history. Borrego, 40, was interim coach of the Orlando Magic midway through the 2014-15 season.
