The new head coach of the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies has ties to the Dakotas.
Dave Joerger won an International Basketball Association title and two Continental Basketball Association crowns with the Bismarck, N.D.-based Dakota Wizards. A third CBA championship came as coach of the Sioux Falls Skyforce in 2005.
He won a fifth minor league championship in 2007 with the Dakota Wizards after they had moved to the NBA Development League. The team has since moved to Santa Cruz, Calif.
The 39-year-old Joerger was introduced as coach of the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday. He had been the team's lead assistant coach.
