MEMPHIS, T.N. (ESPN) -- ESPN sources say that Dave Joerger, a fomer Concordia College and MSUM-Dragon basketball player from 1993-1997, will step into the spotlight for the Memphis Grizzlies. Joerger, who has spent the past six seasons on the Grizzlies' bench, will succeed his former boss, Lionel Hollins. Hollins compiled a 196-155 record after taking over for Marc Iavaroni midway through the 2008-09 season. Before arriving in Memphis, Joerger coached in the International Basketball Association, the Continental Basketball Association and the D-League, where he won five titles in seven seasons as a head coach. Three of those titles came in the CBA where Joeger guided the Dakota Wizards of Bismark, N.D. to four extremely successful seasons. Joerger will take over a Memphis team that has improved in each of the past five seasons. The Grizzlies won 56 games this past season and prior to the 2010-11 campaign, Joerger was tasked by Hollins to oversee the Grizzlies' defense, which was ranked 25th in 2009-10. In the three seasons under Joerger's direction the defense has improved massively, reaching the number two rank in the NBA during the Grizzlies' historic 2012-13 season
