Editors Note: As 2019 turns into 2020, we’re taking the opportunity to look back at some of our best and biggest stories of the year. This piece by sports editor Todd Jorgenson about St. Marks grad Taylor Jenkins was one of those pieces.
Just 16 years after playing his senior season at St. Mark’s, Taylor Jenkins has earned an NBA head coaching job.
Jenkins, 34, was hired by the Memphis Grizzlies in June after quickly rising through the ranks as an assistant over the past few years with the San Antonio Spurs, Atlanta Hawks, and Milwaukee Bucks.
Jenkins, who doesn’t have any playing experience at the college or professional level, will be the second-youngest head coach in the league.
