He graduated from Loyola University Maryland in 1994 with a degree in history and spent on the Loyola Greyhounds men's basketball team from 1989 to 1993.

Michael Malone Career

Coaching career

While completing his degree at Loyola, Malone was an assistant high school basketball coach at Friends School of Baltimore. After graduating from Loyola, Malone joined Oakland University as an assistant coach for Golden Grizzlies men's basketball under coach Greg Kampe. Malone was about to start training to join the Michigan State Police before getting a job offer from Providence College coach Pete Gillen. Malone was an assistant coach for Providence Friars men's basketball from 1995 to 1998. In the 1998–99 season, Malone was director of men's basketball administration at the University of Virginia.

He later moved up to the NBA in 2001 as a coaching associate with the New York Knicks who worked with players, coaching staff, personnel and the video coordinator and edited scouting reports. The Knicks promoted Malone to assistant coach in 2003. Malone later served as an assistant coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2005 to 2010. With Cleveland, Malone helped coach the Cavaliers to five consecutive playoff appearances, including the 2007 NBA Finals, and a franchise-record, league-best 66–16 season in the 2008–09 season. Malone was an assistant coach with the New Orleans Hornets in the 2010–11 season. Allowing a league-best 8.7 fewer points per game than last season, the Hornets had the most improved defense of the season with Malone as assistant and made the 2011 Playoffs.

The Golden State Warriors hired Malone in the summer of 2011 as an assistant coach under Mark Jackson. In the 2012–13 season, the Warriors improved from a 23–43 record to finish 47–35 and earn the team's first playoff berth since 2007. As the sixth seed in the 2013 NBA Playoffs, the Warriors upset the third-seed Denver Nuggets in the first round and lost to the eventual Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs in six games the next round. Malone was reportedly the highest-paid NBA assistant coach in the 2011–12 season. In 2012, Malone was named the best assistant coach by the NBA general managers. Several Warriors, including Draymond Green and Stephen Curry have credited Malone as being a huge part of the team's success after his departure.

On June 3, 2013, Malone was hired by majority owner Vivek Ranadivé as the new head coach of the Sacramento Kings. With the hiring, Malone and his father became the second father-son duo in NBA history, after Bill Musselman and Eric Musselman, to head coach an NBA team. On December 15, 2014, he was fired by the Kings after starting the 2014–15 season with an 11–13 win–loss record.

On June 15, 2015, he was named the new head coach of the Denver Nuggets. In the 2018–19 season, Malone led the Nuggets to the second seed in the Western Conference, behind the Golden State Warriors, with a 54–28 record. In the Nuggets first playoff berth in six seasons, Denver defeated the San Antonio Spurs in the First Round in seven games, before being eliminated in the Semi-finals by the Portland Trail Blazers, also in seven games.

On December 24, 2019, the Nuggets announced that they had agreed to a contract extension with Malone. During the 2020 playoffs in the NBA Bubble, the Nuggets would become the first team in league history to overcome multiple 3–1 deficits in a single postseason, defeating the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers in the First Round and Semi-finals respectively, in seven games after trailing 3–1 each series. Despite the historic feat, Denver would be eliminated in the Western Conference Finals by the eventual NBA champion, the Los Angeles Lakers, in five games.

On March 23, 2022, Malone and the Nuggets reached an agreement on a multi-year contract extension.

National team coaching career

In January 2020, Malone joined the Serbian national team coaching staff as a consultant for the Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone blasted reporters for their 'stupid a** questions' after his team blew a 20-point lead to the Minnesota Timberwolves during Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals to end its quest to defend its championship. The Nuggets led 58-38 at one point in the game but lost to the Timberwolves 98-90. The 28-point swing is an embarrassing way to be eliminated from the postseason, and Malone was visibly distraught in his post game press conference.

An irate Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone was caught screaming in the face of referee Marc Davis - on a night where his team went down 2-0 in their series against the Minnesota Timberwolves. In the first quarter, Minnesota guard Anthony Edwards drove into the lane and drew contact with a Nuggets defender in the lane. Davis didn't call a foul on either team, much to the dismay of each side. But Malone was outraged, walking out onto the court screaming at Davis and getting up in his face as he berated the official for his decision.
