Southorn: Stampede, Coach Michael Peck To Part Ways After 2013-14 Season

The Idaho Stampede -- the Portland Trail Blazers' D-League affiliate -- will reportedly part ways with coach Michael Peck after the 2013-14 season.

Dave Southorn of the Idaho Statesman reports that the the Idaho Stampede will part ways with coach Michael Peck after the 2013-14 season.

The Stampede will also have a new coach; current coach Michael Peck was hired by the Blazers, and he'll move on after his first [stint] as a pro coach. Peck was 42-55 in two seasons in Idaho.

"I'd really like the coach to be in place by the summer so we can be there courtside at (summer league) games in Las Vegas to really get on the same page, get to know the players,'' [Stampede Managing Investor Bill] Ilett said.

The Stampede have been the Portland Trail Blazers' D-League affiliate for the past two seasons, but the Blazers decided in February to cease the partnership after the 2013-14 season.

Peck, who was previously the coach of Nevada high school powerhouse Findlay Prep, was hired by the Blazers back in September 2012.

Ilett told Blazersedge in February that he wasn't sure what what was next for Peck after the Blazers and Stampede agreed to part ways.

Mike Peck has done a nice job growing with this relationship over the two years. I appreciate Mike Peck very much. He's employed by the Trail Blazers so I don't know whether they would be keeping Mike Peck another year on something they're doing or if Mike Peck would like to coach the Idaho Stampede.

Idaho (23-24) has been eliminated from the D-League's 2014 playoffs. The Stampede's season ends on April 5.
