Tall Blacks and New Zealand Breakers assistant basketball coach Dean Vickerman has been handed the job of replacing Murray McMahon at Waikato.

Vickerman has been confirmed as the defending National Basketball League champion Waikato Pistons' new coach, signing on for two years to replace the late McMahon, who passed away in early July.

This will be Vickerman's second stint in the NBL after coaching the Wellington Saints in 2002 and 2003.
