The Iowa Energy wants a return to winning championships so they’ve hired a man who helped lead them there, former assistant, Nate Bjorkgren.
Bjorkgren was Energy head coach in waiting that championship season, but then he left to take over the Santa Cruz Warriors NBA D-League team.
Bjorkgren led the Wizards to the finals.
“I’m back here and I couldn’t be more proud to coach the Iowa Energy,” Bjorkgren said. “This is my home, it’s my home state, the people here are outstanding and I’m extremely happy and excited to get to work here.”
The 38-year old is originally from Storm Lake.
