Oshkosh- The Wisconsin Herd has named Jordan Brady as the team's first head coach.

The Herd is the NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks. The Oshkosh-based team announced Brady's hiring Monday.

Herd general manager Dave Dean says Brady "has the right experience and tools to develop young talent and build the foundation" for a successful G League team.

Brady spent last season as an assistant coach for the Salt Lake City Stars, the G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz. He previously served as an assistant coach with the Idaho Stampede, where he was retained by the organization to help relocate the team to Salt Lake City in 2016.

He also has been an assistant with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, the Bakersfield Jam and the Iowa Energy.

“My family and I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to be a part of the Milwaukee Bucks and Wisconsin Herd family as well as the Oshkosh community,” Brady said. “I look forward to working with Dave and the entire organization to build a successful team that is committed to developing young, talented players on and off the court.” Brady and his wife Brooke have been married for 10 years. The couple has four children; Wyatt, Chamberlain, Elsie and Bo.
