Nate McMillan takes over as head coach of the Indiana Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Larry Bird found the Indiana Pacers' new voice on his own bench. Now Nate McMillan must show his old-school style will still resonate with today's young players.

Bird promoted the 51-year-old McMillan to head coach Monday, hoping he will change the culture inside the locker room. The decision ends the search for Frank Vogel's replacement after less than two weeks.

"We will respect the game," McMillan said during a news conference. "What I mean by respect the game is that you mentally and physically have to prepare yourself to go out and play hard every single night."
