Stoudamire was the head coach at Pacific University before arriving in Boston. He posted a record of 71-77 in five seasons. He was named the West Coast Conference Coach of the Year after leading the Tigers to a 23-10 record during the 2019-2020 season. Stoudamire also spent time as an assistant coach at Arizona (two seasons) and Memphis (five seasons).
Stoudamire was brought on the Celtics staff when Ime Udoka was named head coach. Some were surprised that he wasn’t given more consideration for the interim head coach job instead of Joe Mazzulla.
