JR Reid steps down as assistant basketball coach at Monmouth

WEST LONG BRANCH. N.J. (AP) — JR Reid has resigned as an assistant coach at Monmouth University to pursue opportunities outside of college basketball.

The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference school announced the decision on Tuesday without saying what plans Reid had.

Reid spent four seasons at Monmouth and was an integral part of the program, contributing to 65 overall victories, the 2021 MAAC regular season title, and trips to the MAAC title game in 2019 and 2022.

Reid played for North Carolina in the 1980s and won a bronze medal in the 1988 Olympics. He played in the NBA for the Charlotte Hornets, San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers in a pro career that spanned from 1989-2003, ending overseas.
