Former Pitt Player Launches Coaching Career with NBA’s Atlanta Hawks

Former Pitt player Parker Stewart has decided to launch his coaching career.

Stewart announced on Twitter/X that he will be joining the Atlanta Hawks as a “Development, Advanced Scouting, and Video Associate.”

Stewart, a 6-foot-5 guard, began his collegiate career with the Panthers in the 2017-18 season. As a freshman, he started 20 games, playing more than 26 minutes per contest. Stewart hit 38% of his field goals and 39% of his three-point attempts. The sharpshooter hit more than two three pointers a game that year for Pitt, which became one of three seasons in his collegiate career in which he did so. Stewart finished his lone season with the Panthers averaging 9.1 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.

He then transferred to UT Martin for the 2019-20 season, playing for his father, who was the head coach at the time. After a strong season averaging more than 19 points per game, Stewart’s father Anthony tragically passed away before the 2020-21 season. Stewart did not play that season, and ended up transferring to Indiana to play in the Big Ten in 2021-22. There, he averaged six points per contest.

In the 2022-23 season, Stewart decided to return to UT Martin. He started 30 games and scored more than 16 points per game on average. He played in the UK and in Serbia this past year professionally, averaging 9/2/1 for Tamis in Serbia. However, he has now decided to hang up the hooping shoes.
