Look West For The New Assistant Basketball Coach?

May 10, 2010

When it comes to giving a guess at who will be the new assistant basketball coach replacing Shaun Vandiver, a certain song comes to mind. That song is California Love (hit the link for the song in all its glory), the hit from the 90’s by all-time rapping great Tupac Shakur. Heath Schroyer may be an east coast guy but he cut his teeth as a basketball coach on the west coast at Fresno City College. Just like most jobs it’s not what you know it’s who you know, how do you think Heath got the Wyoming job in the first place? Looking at Heath’s current staff each of them has one thing in common, at one point in time they were coaching in the state of California. Fred Langley first worked with Schroyer at Fresno City College  and Anthony Stewart was plucked from a JUCO in Ohio but he was an assistant at Long Beach State before that. That doesn’t give too much to go on but I have a strong feeling that the new coach who should be announced some time in the next 2-3 weeks will have spent some time coaching at some level (HS, JUCO, University) in California.
