Manchester Giants: Yorick Williams replaces Jeff Jones
Manchester Giants have appointed Yorick Williams as head coach as replacement for the departing Jeff Jones.
The 39-year-old Mancunian started his career at the Giants in 1994 and also played for the club for one season during the 2013-14 campaign.
Williams has played for seven different British Basketball League teams, as well as Aris Thessaloniki in Greece.
"The Giants have done some great work in the last three years and I want to build on that," he said.
Jones, 60, just missed out on a play-off spot this season after a ninth-placed finish and has left to work with Manchester's National Basketball Centre, which opens later this year.
