Lakers To Introduce Mike Brown As New Head Coach In Tuesday Press Conference

Mike Brown will be introduced as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in a Tuesday press conference. The press conference will be held at 3 p.m. Pacific and will be broadcast live at Lakers.com. The team said last week that it was working through the final details to make Brown the franchise's replacement for Phil Jackson, who retired after the Lakers were eliminated in the second round of the NBA Playoffs.

Brown worked for ESPN as a studio analyst for the past year after being fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010. Brown led the Cavs to the 2007 NBA Finals in his first head coaching job in the NBA, and was named the 2009 Coach of the Year. He has huge shoes to fill; Jackson has an NBA record 11 championships as coach, and has the highest winning percentage in league history for coaches with more than one season under their belt.
