AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Larry Brown has hired his older brother, Herb, as an assistant coach for the Detroit Pistons -- the team Herb Brown coached from 1976-78.

The hirings of Brown, John Kuester, Mike Woodson, Dave Hanners, and Igor Stefan Kokoskov were announced Thursday by the Pistons.

Kuester, Woodson and Hanners were assistants under Brown in Philadelphia last season.

Kokoskov, an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers the past three seasons, is expected to help rookie Darko Milicic adjust to life in the United States. Both are from Serbia and Montenegro.
