UMF alum Steve Clifford joins Lakers staff

Postby MattyB » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:44 pm

From 2003-‘07, Clifford served as a member of the Houston Rockets coaching staff and in June of 2007, Clifford joined the Orlando Magic as an assistant coach. The Magic have made the playoffs all four years that Clifford has been an assistant.

Clifford considers the Van Gundy brothers (Jeff and Stan) as mentors and models himself after Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. Known for his defense first mentality, Clifford’s teams have been ranked in the top 10 defensively in each of the past four seasons.
