BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU men’s basketball Head Coach Johnny Jones says former NBA head coach and recent college assistant Eric Musselman will join the Tiger coaching staff as associate coach.

The 49-year-old Musselman spent the last two seasons as assistant coach and later associate head coach at Arizona State University.

Musselman and his father, the late Bill Musselman, were the first father and son combination to both become NBA head coaches.

Eric Musselman will be the only former NBA head coach serving as an associate coach in NCAA basketball.

Musselman served as the head coach of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors from 2002-04 and later the Sacramento Kings in 2006-07.
