I’m excited to be joined today by Coach Jesse Mermuys, Assistant Coach with the Orlando Magic.
His 20 year career includes coaches experiences that started at the middle school level and includes stops in high school, college, the G League, and now at the NBA level.
His 15 years in the NBA include time with the Sacramento Kings, the LA Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets. At the college level, he spent time at the University of Arizona, New Mexico State, and Southern Utah.
Coach Mermuys is a true student of the game who is passionate about improving his craft every day, and is a living testimony that prioritizing experience over pay does pay off in the long-run.
