Woj always has it first:
Erman was with the Celtics for four years during the Doc era where he held a similar position. It's a curious hiring considering the recent allegations that led to his dismissal with the Warriors:
It turns out that Erman's violation was secretly recording conversations between the team's coaches and players, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
Sources said Erman, who was coach Mark Jackson's second assistant, would record coaches' meetings, meetings between the coaches and players, and informal discussions among coaches that took place in the team's coaches room -- all without the participants' knowledge.
I've been told Darren Erman felt badly mistreated by Mark Jackson. Not sure whether that was his motive for reported recordings.— Jay King (@ByJayKing) April 29, 2014
Erman's motivation to make the recordings is unclear and it could simply be a sign of the dysfunction of the Golden State locker room. Chris Broussard's report also details the eventual unraveling between head coach Mark Jackson and now former assistant Brian Scalabrine.
