In his last NBA head coaching job, Mike Brown presided over a team with one of the NBA’s biggest stars. Now that job is his once again, only with a different superstar: Kobe Bryant.

Today the Los Angeles Lakers hired Mike Brown to succeed Phil Jackson. The terms of the contract include $18 million dollars over the span of four years, with the last year of the contract being an option year held by the team.

Mike Brown was unable to win an NBA Championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers, with whom he parted ways after last season. During his five years in Cleveland, Brown’s Cavaliers amassed at least 50 wins in four of those years, surpassing the 60 win total twice. Over that same time span, the Lakers only had 3 seasons where they surpassed 50 wins, only surpassing 60 wins for one of those seasons.
