BOZEMAN -- Former Oregon guard Brandon Lincoln joined Montana State as an assistant men’s basketball coach Tuesday.
Lincoln comes to MSU from his alma mater, where he worked as men’s basketball assistant conditioning coach in 2013-14 for the Ducks’ NCAA tournament team. It was his second tour of duty on Dana Altman's Oregon staff.
He also worked as a graduate assistant manager in 2010-11 and as the program’s video coordinator in 2011-12. In between stints at Oregon, Lincoln was the director of video operations at Miami (Ohio) in 2012-13.
A combo guard for Oregon from 2003-06, Lincoln played on an NCAA tournament team in 2003-04 and an NIT Final Four squad the next year. He prepped at Jefferson High in Portland, Ore.
“Brandon has been with me three of the last four years at Oregon, and was at Miami of Ohio for a year as an assistant,” said Bobcats coach Brian Fish. “I’m really excited about his ability as a recruiter because we need to recruit the Portland and Seattle areas and that’s where he’s from. That is an advantage for him, and I think he will be a really great mentor for our players.”
