Rivers to coach Clippers and be team’s senior VP

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Doc Rivers is the Los Angeles Clippers’ new coach and senior vice president of basketball operations.

The Clippers finalized the championship-winning coach’s move from the Boston Celtics on Tuesday after weeks of negotiations and reversals.

Boston will get a future first-round pick from the Clippers for Rivers, who went 416-305 and won the 2008 NBA title during nine seasons with the Celtics.

The 51-year-old Rivers is replacing Vinny Del Negro, who wasn’t re-signed after going 56-26 and winning the Pacific Division title in the Western Conference during the most successful season in franchise history.

Rivers played one season for the Clippers in 1991-92 during his 13-year NBA career.

The Clippers will introduce Rivers at a news conference Wednesday.
