He leads the Grizzlies franchise charts in the following categories - most games coached (regular season - 351 and playoffs -35), most wins by a head coach (regular season - 196 and playoffs - 18). He also led the Grizzlies to their only Conference Finals appearance in franchise history in 2013.
Before he began coaching in 1988, Hollins had played ten seasons (1975-85) in the league.
During his playing career in the league, he won a championship with the Portland Trail Blazers in 1977, he was named to the 1978 All-Star Team and a couple of Defensive Teams (First team - 1978; Second Team - 1979).
