Both times, it was Jay Triano.

Triano played his college hoops for Simon Fraser. Though they weren’t Division II at the time, he stuffed the stats sheets when he was there that his legacy is still known today. He left the school with 11 records, including 2,616 points that were best in the Clans history.

Triano has had quite the journey in his coaching career. He has been all over the NBA and in the Olympics for the Canadian National Team. He was first an interim head coach for the Toronto Raptors in 2008. Now, he takes over a Phoenix Suns team that seems to have a lot of question marks regarding its future. All things aside, Triano led the Suns to victory in his debut, taking down the Sacramento Kings 117-115 on Monday night.
