TEANECK, N.J. -- Happy birthday to Teaneck's Lawrence Frank.

The LA Clippers VP and former Nets and Pistons coach was born Aug. 23, 1970 and turns 47 on Wednesday.

Frank grew up in Teaneck and graduated from Teaneck High School, though he did not make the basketball team, nor did he play at Indiana University, where he graduated with a degree in education.

He's had a unique NBA career for a non-player, having been head coach of the Detroit Pistons and the then-New Jersey Nets and an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics.

Frank was also an assistant for the Brooklyn Nets under rookie head coach Jason Kidd before heading to LA to join the Clippers. Frank had coached Kidd as a player on the NJ Nets.

The New York Times did a 2004 story about his basketball passion and career, on the cusp of his setting of a new NBA record for the most consecutive wins by a rookie NBA head coach with the Nets.

Frank and his wife Susan have two daughters and live in Demarest.
