After playing basketball with Tyler Junior College for two years, he transferred to the University of Southern California, where he played with the Trojans and received a bachelor’s degree in Sociology.
In 1991, Pack joined the NBA’s Portland Trailblazers as an undrafted free agent, and went on to have a successful 13-year career in the league.
The point guard spent time with seven different teams, including two terms with the Denver Nuggets and New Jersey Nets, and along the way earned a reputation as a lightning quick playmaker and prolific dunker.
Pack began his coaching career in 2009, when he became an assistant for the New Orleans Hornets.
In the ensuing years, he would also serve as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder, before returning to New Orleans in 2015 to coach the newly renamed Pelicans.
In 2018, Coach Pack was named Assistant Coach for the Washington Wizards.
In addition to his passion for basketball, Pack is highly involved in the community and charitable activities carried out through his Foundation.
His deep commitment to serving underprivileged youth comes from first-hand experience, having grown up in a neighborhood that was synonymous with poverty and crime. The good fortune of coaching has provided him with the remarkable opportunity to make a difference in the lives of at-risk children.
Using basketball as a platform for change, Pack’s ultimate goal is to instill hope, promote personal growth, and open doors for kids who may have otherwise been left behind.
