The Miami Heat’s offseason has been a busy one, with departures and new arrivals getting much of the attention.
However, on Friday, the Heat announced a trio of promotions in their front office, which includes a pair connected to their G League team, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
The Heat today announced they have promoted Adam Simon to Heat Vice President, Basketball Operations/Assistant General Manager, Eric Glass to head coach of the G League Sioux Falls Skyforce and Eric Amsler to Heat Director of Scouting and Director of Player Personnel/Skyforce GM.

Simon, who has been with the Heat for the last 25 years, will now be in charge of all aspects of the Heat’s scouting department. He’s being elevated to the spot that had been held by Chet Kemmerer, who is voluntarily taking on a lesser role after 22 years to scout and advise the Heat.
Glass has spent nine seasons in the Heat organization, including the last two as the team’s video coordinator. He had previously served as head coach of the team’s Summer League squad. The role of video coordinator has served as a pipeline to bigger things, with the most notable example being Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra.
While Eric Amsler remains as the Heat’s director of scouting, the other two duties serve as promotions for the veteran of 15 seasons with the team. Prior to these elevations, he had served as an assistant in the personnel and general manager spot for the Skyforce under Simon.
