BOZEMAN -- Assistant coach George Pfeifer has resigned from the Montana State men’s basketball staff.

Pfeifer stepped down after just one season on the Bobcats bench to move with his wife to Spokane, Wash.

“My wife just took a new job in Spokane,” Pfeifer said. “We’ve been doing the long-distance relationship, but to be seven hours apart just wouldn’t work. We just celebrated our 30th anniversary last week, and she’s been following me around all these years. It’s time for us to switch roles.”

Pfeifer previously was the head coach at Montana State Billings from 2008-10. Prior to that, Pfeifer was the head coach at Idaho for two seasons.

“Like me, George is a family person, and I know being apart this past year was very difficult for them,” said MSU coach Brad Huse. “George did a lot in helping shape this upcoming team and his thumbprint is all over this team as he was actively involved in the recruitment of about half our current players.

“We appreciate the work George did for Montana State and our basketball program. He was everything I had hoped he’d be.”
