Moncrief played 10 of his 11 NBA seasons in Milwaukee, becoming a leader of the Bucks’ competitive teams in the 1980s. He was a two-time defensive player of the year.
Moncrief's coaching experience includes a season at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock and a brief tenure as head coach of the D-League Fort Worth Flyers. He has also been an assistant coach for the Dallas Mavericks and a shooting coach for the Golden State Warriors. He has also occasionally served as a television commentator for Bucs games.
In his new role, Moncrief will focus on improving the Bucks' defense, which makes sense, given his excellent defensive reputation as a player.
The Bucks are trying to regroup after a 35-47 season in 2010-11.
