Corliss Williamson joins Kings staff
Corliss Williamson is returning to the NBA, this time as an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings.
Williamson, who was drafted by the Kings with the 13th overall pick in 1995, spent the last three seasons as the head coach at Central Arkansas.
"I honestly couldn't see myself leaving for any situation other than an opportunity to go back to Sacramento," Williamson said in a statement released by the school. "It's a place where I cut my teeth as a rookie in the NBA, spent over half of my career there. It's an area that reminds me a lot of Arkansas, with the people, the fans they have there. It's just a great opportunity that I have now to return there and be able to coach at the highest level."
