John Stockton is returning to college basketball as an assistant coach.
The Montana State women’s basketball team announced on Tuesday that Stockton will be joining the program as an assistant coach this season.
Stockton’s daughter, Lindsay, is a senior for the Bobcats. In 29 games last season, she averaged 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and a team-high 4.3 assists.
NBA Hall of Famer John Stockton has joined the Montana State University women’s basketball program as an assistant coach for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign, announced MSU Head Coach Tricia Binford, Tuesday morning.
Stockton will replace Kellee Barney, who announced she was leaving the program to enter private business and be with family in the Seattle area, last week.
“Coach Binford called and took a flier asking if I’d be interested,” Stockton said. “I’m excited about the prospect of working with the kids. I’ve enjoyed watching the team over the past three years. I had a chance to be around them and develop relationships during their trip to the Bahamas this spring. It will be a fun group to work with.”
