MEMPHIS, TENN (AP)-- THE MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES HAVE INTRODUCED DAVE JOERGER (YAY-GEHR) AS THEIR COACH, SENDING THE FRANCHISE IN A NEW DIRECTION AFTER ITS MOST SUCCESSFUL ERA UNDER FORMER COACH LIONEL HOLLINS. JOERGER WAS A SUCCESSFUL HEAD COACH IN THE MINOR LEAGUES AND WAS THE LEAD ASSISTANT UNDER HOLLINS THE LAST TWO SEASONS. HE HAS BEEN WITH THE TEAM SIX SEASONS. THE GRIZZLIES WON A FRANCHISE-BEST 56 GAMES AND REACHED THE WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS THIS SEASON. BUT THERE WAS A DISCONNECT BETWEEN HOLLINS AND THE NEW OWNERSHIP GROUP LED BY ROBERT PERA. HOLLINS' CONTRACT WASN'T RENEWED. TERMS OF JOERGER'S CONTRACT WEREN'T RELEASED.
