Buzz Peterson to Charlotte Bobcats

Postby Rowdy on Tue Jun 12, 2007 6:35 pm

I heard this evening on Charlotte WBTV that it is official. Buzz Peterson has joined the Bobcat organization as director of basketball operations.

CHARLOTTE - Former North Carolina All-America basketball Phil Ford and former Charlotte 49ers coach Lee Rose and are joining the Charlotte Bobcats' coaching staff.

Head coach Sam Vincent confirmed those hires Thursday. Vincent also said he is leaning heavily toward retaining Bobcats assistant Jeff Capel and expects Coastal Carolina coach Buzz Peterson to join the staff in a non-coaching capacity.
Ford and Peterson would add to a trend in which managing partner Michael Jordan hires longtime associates. Ford and Peterson are fellow Tar Heels.

Peterson, set to begin his third season as the head coach at Coastal Carolina, told The Sun News in Myrtle Beach, S.C., that he was "intrigued" by the idea of joining the Bobcats as a scout or a member of their basketball operations.

"He'll be invaluable in the organization," Vincent said, when asked about Peterson. "I haven't spoken to Michael specifically about what his role is."
