The 40-year-old joins Andy Greer, Ed Pinckney, Ryan Saunders as assistant coaches on the team. Pinckney and Allen both attended Villanova University.

Greer is named an assistant coach after serving last season as an advance scout. That role was filled by Pat Zipfel, who left his head coaching job at Mansfield University to return to the NBA.

Zipfel spent the past three seasons as the Mansfield head coach. He previously worked under Thibodeau, as an advance scout with the Chicago Bulls from 2013-2015.

Allen played ten seasons in the NBA, last playing in 2010-2011. He appeared in 478 games in his career with the Miami Heat, Charlotte Bobcats, Chicago Bulls, New Jersey Nets, Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, and the Orlando Magic.
