John Stockton has been hired by Montana State's women's basketball team as an assitant coach.

Stockton's daughter Lindsay is a senior for the Bobcats. He coached her and three other MSU teammates at Gonzaga Prep and a AAU team.

Stockton will assist Tricia Binford.

"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."
