PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Former NBA player and coach Terry Porter has been formally introduced as the new coach at the University of Portland.

The Pilots announced Porter as the team's new head coach late last week, but some 500 fans greeted him on Tuesday at a press conference on the court at the Chiles Center.

Porter replaces Eric Reveno, who was dismissed last month after 10 years with the Pilots.

Porter played for the Blazers from 1985-95, anchoring a team that went to the Western Conference finals three times from 1990 to 1992 and to the NBA Finals twice.

The starters on that team were Porter, Clyde Drexler, Jerome Kersey, Buck Williams and Kevin Duckworth, but the group would never win a title.
