The Sacramento Kings say they plan to formally introduce new head coach George Karl Tuesday afternoon at the Kings Practice Facility Court.

Karl is the sixth-winningest coach in NBA history. He's expected to coach the Kings this Friday at home against Boston.

Former head coach Tyrone Corbin will stay with the team as an adviser to the front office.

Corbin had replaced Michael Malone, who was fired in December.
