INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers hired Lloyd Pierce, Ronald Nored, Mike Weinar and Jenny Boucek as assistant coaches for new head coach Rick Carlisle on Friday.

Pierce was head coach of the Atlanta Hawks for the past two and a half seasons before he was fired in March. He is an assistant coach for the U.S. men's team heading to Japan for the Olympics next week.

Nored, a former star at Butler in Indianapolis, spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach for the Charlotte Hornets.

Both Weiner and Boucek worked under Carlisle in Dallas. Weiner spent 13 seasons with the Mavericks, including four as an assistant, and Boucek was an assistant the past three. Boucek also was a player development coach with the Sacramento Kings, becoming just the third woman to coach in the NBA.
