MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

New Memphis Grizzlies head coach is learning his way around the Bluff City.

David Fizdale threw out the first pitch before the Redbirds game at Autozone Park.

“Grizzdale” said it was his knuckleball, and it landed with a strike.

Fizdale has been on a whirlwind of a tour of Memphis, but he said it has been fun.

When asked if he’s tried out the barbeque, the new Grizz coach didn’t bluff.

“Absolutely, but I'm not going to say where, because I'm not starting any trouble around the city. Just know that I'm going to visit all of you,” he said.

Fizdale said Memphis has done a great job of making him feel welcome.

Earlier in the day Tuesday, the team formally introduced Fizdale as head coach. The new leader of the Grit N’ Grind made his intentions clear: He’s here to win a championship.
