James Bulluck, who starred as a forward on Rocky Mountain College’s 2009 NAIA national championship basketball team, will be serving as an assistant coach for the Battlin’ Bears this coming season.

Bulluck will be joining his former head coach Bill Dreikosen and his longtime assistant Wes Keller on the Rocky bench. He was a student assistant for Rocky in 2009-10 while completing his schooling.

“James just has a really good mind for the game,” Dreikosen said. “I think he understands the game well, and that showed when he played. We’re just really excited to have him as a former player and as a part of our staff.”

Bulluck, who is a Billings Skyview graduate, works as a home manager for Youth Dynamics in Billings.

He started 36 games for Rocky’s national title team, averaging 11.4 points and 4.2 rebounds per outing. He was one of the Bears’ leading 3-point shooters.

Bulluck played two years at Sheridan College and one year at Regis University in Denver before transferring to Rocky for one season.

Rocky’s men open the 2013-14 season Oct. 25 against Walla Walla University at the Montana Western Tournament in Dillon. The Bears’ home opener will be Nov. 4 against Montana State Billings.
