Status of Current Assistant Coaches

Post by duelalumnicat » Thu Apr 04, 2019 4:47 pm

Does anyone have any insight as to whether Coach Sprinkle will retain any of the current assistant coaches?

For what it is worth, I hope Coach Sprinkle at least considers keeping Coach Chris Haslam. This based upon Coach Haslam's European recruiting connections, and his relationship with the current players and recruits, like incoming big man, Jubrile Belo. Plus, I like Coach Haslam, and I think he is a good guy.

But, I would also understand if Coach Sprinkle wants to clean house.

Has anyone heard what Coach Fish's plans are?

I am hearing there is a good chance Haslam will be retained.

Let me first off say how excited I am to have DS back at MSU!!!
I agree Haslam should be considered to stay w his recruiting connections overseas.
Two names that come to mind are Justin Wetzel and Bobby Howard. Not sure if Wetzel is wanting to stay in the NBA, but I feel Bobby would come today if asked.

Haslam, Dan Russell and possibly Eric Brown.

Casper Head coach Dan Russell looks like another, and I hear we are looking at a former UNLV recruiting coordinator, but is still in the works

We must have similar people we talk to. Eric Brown is that UNLV guy and, apparently, Russell is out of the bag...look for Bonton to come with them, and one of their big guys.

That is big time news if true. Casper CC was 32-3 last year led by Bonton (21, 5 and 5) and 6’9” Wilfried Likayi out of Portland.

If Likayi is the big man that is two impact starters coming in to replace Hall and Blevins!!! Likayi averaged 17 and 8 while shooting 50% and can stretch the floor as he hit 48 threes last year shooting 39%

This would be very good in my opinion

Casper and Sheridan CC both had good years making the national tournament. Perennial powerhouse the College of Southern Idaho did not.

I know this is the post of current assistant coaches, but I have heard some rumors... don't know how credible, but the Hurley kid who played at UMW a few years ago, is back in the state apparently, and has been doing good in Juco ball. Would he possibly apply for assistant job? Know he was at Casper College who was unreal this year, but went down to New Mexico Juco I think.

Another one I heard about, but don't know who he is, but is there another UMW player coaching D1 down in Alabama, Arkansas or somewhere in those parts? I remember reading something back in the fall on message boards about a Montana guy in the south and their school had a top 100 recruiting class. Would he apply for job? Or even as a director of ops? Think it would be cool to have a few guys on staff with ties to Montana.
