It looks like former Ohio State basketball star Evan Turner has found his next gig after playing 10 years in the NBA.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, he’s going to join the Boston Celtics organization and be an assistant coach for them:

As the tweet also says, Turner’s going to be focused on player development within the Celtics organization.

Turner comes off an NBA career where he appeared in 705 games for five different teams and he averaged 9.7 points per game. He also averaged 4.6 rebounds per game and 3.5 assists per game. Turner shot 43.4% from the field and 29.4% from three-point range.

His best season during his career came during 2013-2014 when he averaged 17.4 points per game with the Philadelphia 76ers. He also averaged six rebounds and 3.7 assists per game as a well-rounded performer.

Before he called it quits as a player, he played in 19 games for the Atlanta Hawks this past season and only averaged 3.3 points per game.

Turner was a three-year player for the Buckeyes, really bursting onto the national scene in 2009-10 when he was the AP POY, the Naismith Award winner, and the B1G POY. Best of luck to Turner as he makes the jump to the coaching ranks after a successful playing career.
