Brad Greenberg (born 1954) is an American basketball coach, who is head coach at Hapoel Jerusalem.1 He also served as head coach for Israeli 2012-2013 season champions Maccabi Haifa and as an assistant coach for Virginia Tech, and the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks.2 In addition, Greenberg was director of player-personnel for the Portland Trail Blazers and general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers.3

Greenberg was named Radford University's sixth head men's basketball coach on March 23, 2007, after serving four seasons as an assistant coach to his brother, Seth, at Virginia Tech.23 He also was an assistant college coach at American University, Saint Joseph's University and South Florida University.

During his stint as general manager, the Philadelphia 76ers drafted scoring sensation Allen Iverson, dubbed by Philly fans as "The Answer," with 1996's first overall pick. In Iverson's third NBA season, the Sixers ended a string of seven consecutive losing seasons and simultaneously started a five-season NBA playoff run.234

He resigned his position at Radford University on May 18, 2011, amid NCAA investigations.5 In February 2012, Radford received two years of probation from the NCAA, but no postseason ban, for major recruiting violations. Greenberg was hit with a five-year show-cause penalty, which effectively bars him from college coaching during that period.6

He was formerly an assistant on former NBA head coach Eric Musselman's coaching staff for the Venezuela national basketball team that has hosted FIBA's 2012 Men's Basketball Olympic Qualifying Tournament.67
