SALT LAKE CITY — Former Jazz guard Randy Livingston on Wednesday was named head coach of the Idaho Stampede, NBA Development League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets and the Portland Trail Blazers.
Livingston helped lead the Stampede to the 2008 D-League championship while playing for them late in the final year of his career, which included stints with nine NBA teams in 11 seasons.
The New Orleans native played 17 games for Utah in the 2004-05 season, and later — much-liked by members of the Jazz front office and their coaching staff — served as a volunteer assistant coach for their Rocky Mountain Revue summer-league team.
This past season, Livingston worked as an assistant to former BYU standout and current Maine Red Claws D-League head coach Austin Ainge.
Livingston replaces Bob MacKinnon, who resigned after the Stampede went 25-25 in his only season as head coach.
