BOZEMAN -- Montana State men’s basketball coach Brian Fish is hanging on to assistant coach Chris Haslam.

Haslam joined the Bobcats staff under former coach Brad Huse last year and will remain on Fish’s staff after being reappointed on Thursday. Haslam, a native of Southport, England, came to Bozeman originally in the summer of 2013 from Lamar Community College in Colorado.

“He’s come in and impressed me with his work ethic, his knowledge of the game is really good, and he’s recruited some players that I think can really help this program,” Fish said. “He opens up a recruiting area overseas that I think can be advantageous for Montana State. So he brings a lot of things to the program, but the biggest is how hard he works.”

Haslam played at Wyoming from 1993-97, and then played professionally in Europe for 13 years. He began his coaching career with the Everton Tigers in Liverpool as a player-assistant from 2008-10, and also coached with the Everton Academy prep team in 2009-10.

Haslam, first-year assistant Kenya Crandell and second-year graduate assistant Luke Fennelly currently form Fish’s staff at MSU. Fish indicated he will round out the staff sometime in May.
