Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
Congratulating Toronto Raptor’s Head Coach, Nick Nurse
Thursday, June 27, 2019
 
I am proud to say that the NBA season concluded with a University of Northern Iowa graduate being able to call himself a champion. 
 
The Toronto Raptors’ head coach, Nick Nurse, graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with his B.A. in accounting, having played for the Panthers while at UNI. 
 
Nick went on to coach for numerous teams, including Grandview University in Des Moines, Iowa. 
 
Nick brought the first ever NBA championship to the city of Toronto.
 
Congratulations, Nick.
