EL SEGUNDO, California (AP) — Former Missouri head basketball coach Quin Snyder is moving to a new NBA address.

The Los Angeles Lakers announced Snyder’s hiring on Friday. He and former NBA player Chuck Person will serve as assistant coaches for Mike Brown.

Snyder spent last season as an assistant with the Philadelphia 76ers. Previously, he coached the Austin Toros in the NBA D-League for three years. Snyder coached seven years for the Mizzou Tigers, where his tenure ended in NCAA violations that led to probation and off-the-court problems with players.

Person spent the last two seasons working with the Lakers under retired coach Phil Jackson. Previously, he spent two seasons each as an assistant with Sacramento and Indiana, where he played 13 years in the NBA.
