DeMarre Carroll, former Mizzou star, lands job on NBA coaching staff, per report
DeMarre Carroll was one of the most popular Mizzou men’s basketball players of the Mike Anderson era, helping lead the Tigers to the Elite Eight in the 2009 NCAA Tournament after winning the Big 12 conference tournament.
He then went on to have a long NBA career, including a stop with the Atlanta Hawks from 2013 to 2015, where he overlapped with coach Mike Budenholzer.
Budenholzer is now the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks and, per NBA insider Chris Haynes, he’s bringing Carroll in as part of his coaching staff:

Carroll last played in the NBA in 2020 for the Houston Rockets. In addition to the Rockets and Hawks, he spent time with the Memphis Grizzlies, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs.
This will be Carroll’s first job as a pro coach.
