The Phoenix Suns have agreed to terms with Utah Jazz assistant Igor Kokoskov to become the franchise's head coach. The two sides reached agreement on a three-year contract, league sources told ESPN on Wednesday.
Kokoskov, a native of Serbia, will be the first head coach born and raised outside North America in NBA history, the Suns said. He will begin his duties as head coach after Utah's season concludes. The Jazz trail the Houston Rockets 1-0 in their Western Conference semifinal series.
