Chaisson Allen (born June 1, 1989) is an American professional basketball coach and former player, currently an assistant coach for the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League.[1][2] In his playing career, Allen played the point guard/shooting guard position. Chaisson Allen was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Northeastern University, where he was a four year starter.[3] Post college Allen played in Europe for six seasons.[4][5] In November 2015, he had season ending injuries and decided to retire pursuing a profession in coaching.

Following the close of his professional career, Allen became player development at University Of Miami, for two seasons.[6] In both seasons, the Hurricanes made postseason appearances in the NCAA Tournament. The Hurricanes also produced three NBA Draft picks during his tenure, Davon Reed Bruce Brown Jr. and Lonnie Walker.

Becoming a known name in player development, in 2018 Allen was given the opportunity to join the NBA G-League as an Assistant Coach/Manager of Player Development with the Washington Wizards affiliate Capital City Go-Go in their inaugural season.[7] Allen assisted in the call ups of Chasson Randle and Chris Chiozza,[8][9] while holding the best NBA G-League expansion team record of 25-25.

Following the 2019 season, the Milwaukee Bucks organization announced Allen as a part of the Wisconsin Herd coaching staff on September 24, 2019.[10]
