Tony Allen Begins New Coaching Role With Memphis Grizzlies

I’m thrilled to post that friend to the site Tony Allen is back with the Memphis Grizzlies. Although, TA is not in an Grizzlies uniform, he is a part of the Memphis Grizzlies organization.

Tony has never made it a secret that he loves Memphis, The Grizzlies and the game of basketball. His new role will be player development coach with the Memphis Hustle, the Grizzlies’ G League affiliate.

“Yeah, I’m super excited!” Coach Jenkins said when asked about Allen’s relationship with the team. “At the start of the year, Tony came to us talking about obviously his passion for this organization.  We sat down and he talked about how much he can’t wait to get back.  We tried to find a good opportunity.  It took us some time to kind of figure out what makes sense.  But this allows him to dive right into player development a – which he is passionate about.”

“We thought that the Memphis Hustle would be a good avenue for him,” Jenkins would add.  “He knows the game.  He loves the game.  He’d be a great teacher of the game, with the things that he does on his own, but to give back to the team that meant so much to him, is going to be awesome to have him in the fold.”

Congrats TA.
