In addition, he has an interview with the Indiana Pacers coming up shortly.

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.
