Windy City Bulls announce new head coach

Updated 9/6/2019 5:55 PM

The Windy City Bulls officially named a new head coach Friday, turning to Australia native Damian Cotter to lead team's fourth season in Hoffman Estates.

Cotter, 48, has spent two seasons in the G-League, working on the Long Island Nets staff in 2017-18 and then serving as lead assistant for the Capital City Go-Go last year.


He spent one season as head coach of the Sydney Kings and headed Australia's U-19 national team. The bulk of his basketball experience was in player development, working at the New South Wales Institute of Sport from 2007-14.

Cotter replaces Charlie Henry, who left after two seasons to become an assistant at the University of Alabama. Windy City made its first G-League playoff appearance in the spring.

The Bulls also announced that Naperville North High School grad Henry Domercant will return for a second season as an assistant coach. Domercant had a long international playing career before returning to the area. Martin Rancik was promoted to assistant coach from basketball operations associate, while Josh Kreibich was named the team's general manager.

The Windy City Bulls play their first home game of the season Nov. 9 at the Sears Centre.
