Former Kings Sixth Man of the Year Named to Coaching Staff

Dave Joerger is making changes to his coaching staff. After the departure of Jenny Boucek earlier this offseason, who joined Rick Carlisle's staff in Dallas, the Kings had a vacancy. On Thursday afternoon, they filled the spot with fan favorite Bobby Jackson.

Jackson will work as an assistant player development coach after spending the last three seasons as a collegiate scout for the team. 

This is the second go-around on Sacramento's staff for Jackson. He spent two seasons as an assistant coach for Paul Westphal from 2010-12 after retiring as a player in 2009. 

Jackson spent 12 seasons in the NBA, including two stops in Sacramento. He averaged 9.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists for his career. In 2002-03, Jackson was named Sixth Man of the Year with Sacramento when he averaged 15.2 points per game.
