On Tuesday afternoon, Montana State Athletic Director Peter Fields held a press conference to announce the resignation of Men’s Basketball Head Coach Brad Huse. The announcement came after a disappointing 14-17 season that saw the Cats miss the Big Sky Conference Tournament for the first time during Huse’s tenure.
Huse compiled a 107-133 record in eight seasons as the head coach, placing him sixth on the all time MSU wins list. The decision was made Tuesday morning during a post-season debriefing between Fields and Huse.
“We need some work; we need to get better,” Fields remarked during the press conference. “There are 24 or 25 Division I coaching jobs open right now, we’re going to move as quickly as possible.”
MSU will look at candidates from across the country and Fields hopes to have a new coach hired within the next few weeks.
