NBA Hall-of-Fame point guard Gary Payton has agreed to become the head men's basketball coach at Lincoln University, the school announced this past Friday.

Lincoln University is a small private school in Payton’s hometown of Oakland, California.

“It’s a startup program and a private independent school where I can establish what I want to establish,” Payton told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. “I don’t have to go behind anybody to try to make a program become something or keep it going. I can start it off with my own program with what I want to happen. And the reason I took it is because it’s in Oakland, California.”

Payton also pointed to the diminishing number of professional sports teams in Oakland as a reason he took the job.
