Official Release | September 8, 2022

 CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Charge of the NBA G League, who open their second season in Cleveland at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center on Friday, November 4th at 7:00pm vs. the Motor City Cruise, have announced Mike Gerrity as their Head Coach for the 2022-23 NBA G League season.  Gerrity comes to lead the Charge after spending the last nine seasons in various roles with the Charge’s parent club, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“We are thrilled to have Mike become the newest head coach of the Charge,” said Charge General Manager Brendon Yu.  “Mike has a plethora of experience at the NBA level serving in a variety of roles on staff, but really excels in player development.  Mike also brings a unique perspective as a former “D League” player himself.  I’m really looking forward to working with him and having him apply his knowledge and experience to lead the Charge.”

“We are so excited to have Mike Gerrity lead the way as Head Coach of the Cleveland Charge,” said Cavaliers Head Coach J.B. Bickerstaff.  “There is no better person for this job and we have extreme confidence in his ability to develop players. We’ve seen the fruits of his labor with the Cavaliers and we expect the same commitment and dedication with the Charge.”

Gerrity was promoted to Assistant Coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers in September 2021 after spending the past three seasons as Director of Player Development/Assistant Coach (2018-2021). Gerrity also spent two seasons as director of player development for the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers’ exclusively-operated NBA G League Team, and a player development assistant with the Cavs (2016-2018). Gerrity initially joined the team as an assistant video coordinator in 2013.  Before starting out his career in coaching, Gerrity played two seasons in the NBA G League for the Dakota Wizards, Erie BayHawks and Maine Red Claws. He starred at the University of Southern California in 2009-10 after also playing collegiate basketball at Pepperdine and UNC Charlotte. While at Pepperdine, he was named to the West Coast Conference All-Freshman Team and tabbed as the WCC Freshman of the Year by CBS Sports Line.  The Yorba Linda, California native earned his degree in sociology from USC.

All five previous Charge Head Coaches have transitioned as NBA call-ups: Alex Jensen, 2011-13 (Utah), Steve Hetzel, 2013-14 (Charlotte), Jordi Fernandez, 2014-16 (Denver), Nate Reinking, 2016-21 (Cleveland), and Dan Geriot, 2021-22 (Cleveland).
