Indiana Pacers Assistant Coach Popeye Jones has taken advantage of his NBA playing career to make himself a better coach. Coach Jones has utilized the skills, tips, and tricks of not only his fellow coaches he works alongside of today, but also those he played for during his career on the court. Away from the gym his family life also revolves around sports, and not just basketball. Two of his sons are currently players in the NHL while his wife works for the NCAA. It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that his sons went pro in something other than basketball as Popeye himself was a two-sport star growing up in both baseball and basketball. Watch his Coaches Story to hear more about his journey, influences and more!
