Tab Baldwin

In the early 2000s the Tall Blacks were coached by the American Tab Baldwin, whose skill and energy were pivotal to the team's success at the 2002 World Championships. He was famous for his sideline clipboard, used to outline tactics during games. Baldwin also successfully coached the Auckland Stars in the NBL and, after a stint overseas, returned in 2013 to coach the Hawke's Bay Hawks.
