'I'm forever grateful': Before moving on to the Las Vegas Aces, Pacers assistant Tyler Marsh gifted game ball
He will soon head to Las Vegas to begin his new role as a coach on Becky Hammon's staff. After the Pacers' final game, Rick Carlisle presented him with a ball signed by the team.
Tyler Marsh just completed his second and final season on the Pacers’ coaching staff. After accepting a new job in February, he will soon head west to Las Vegas to begin his new role as an assistant coach for the Aces in the WNBA.
Becky Hammon, a San Antonio Spurs assistant coach since 2014, was named Aces head coach and then soon after, she hired Marsh to join her staff. He visited Las Vegas in mid-February during the All-Star break and then decided it was something he could not pass up.
It’s been a big year for him and his growing family. He recently announced on social media that he’s expecting a son in September.
As one of three player development coaches, along with Jannero Pargo and Calbert Cheaney, Marsh worked closely with many players on the team. Before games this season, he worked with Caris LeVert, Chris Duarte, Jalen Smith and Brad Wanamaker.
Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle had the entire team sign a game ball for Marsh, then presented it to him Sunday after their season finale in Brooklyn.
“He’s just a really great young coach that has all the tools,” Carlisle said last month. “He’s a great communicator, he knows the game. He’s done all the different types of tasks as you work your way up. And by learning about the video and the scouting and all that stuff, it gives you the foundation to become a terrific coach.
