Craig’s story is similar to Spoelstra’s, as he started out in the Heat’s video department and rose through the ranks.
Craig also spent a short stint as the head coach of the Sioux Falls Skyforce, Miami’s G League team. He guided the Skyforce to the league title in the 2015-16 season and claimed the Coach of the Year award.
Last month, Craig also got strong consideration to be the next head coach of the Chicago Bulls, a position that ultimately went to Billy Donovan.
