BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Montana State men’s basketball coach Brian Fish has hired former Oregon guard Brandon Lincoln as an assistant coach.

Lincoln played for the Ducks from 2003-06 and graduated with a degree in political science before playing professionally for two years in Germany. He was a graduate assistant manager at Oregon in 2010-11 and was the program’s video coordinator during the 2011-12 season. He was director of video operations at Miami of Ohio for one year before returning to Oregon last year as assistant conditioning coach.

Fish was an Oregon assistant for the past four years before being named MSU coach in April. He says Lincoln has good recruiting ties in his hometown of Portland, Oregon and in the Seattle area, has a good work ethic and will be a great mentor for MSU’s players.
