I believe Legs has found a veteran assistant he has known since his college days to come in once the contractual stuff is worked out.

"Too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the meal," is close to what Legs once said about having more than three assistants on his staff.

Also, with the budget constraints the university is facing, it makes more sense to pay three assistants a fair salary than splitting the budgeted allocation among more than three.

Ben Johnson was announced as an assistant at Northern Arizona yesterday.  

The life of a basketball coach is not an easy one, but it has to be tougher on the family that must pull up stakes and move so often.

Certainly not as bad as it is for military families who are uprooted every couple of years and whose parent is often deployed and in harm's way...but still.

Coach Legans has a new assistant coach, and he is a man Legs played for at Fresno St.

Arturo Ormond comes to UP after two seasons as the associate head coach at EWU and has extensive coaching experience at all levels of basketball, including coaching stints at six D1 universities.
 
He was an assistant to Rodney Terry at UTEP for two seasons prior to joining the EWU staff and was instrumental in recruiting my guy Souley Boum away from USF. Ormond has served as an assistant coach at Fresno State (2002-2005), D3 Centenary College (1999-2002), University of Maryland Eastern Shore (1997-1999), University of Texas-Pan American (1995-1997) and Tuskegee University (1994-1995).

Ormond began his coaching career as an assistant boys’ basketball coach at Farragut High School (1993-1994) in Chicago, and served as varsity boys basketball head coach at Edison High School in Fresno, Calif., for five years (2006-2010).

Besides coaching at the collegiate and high school levels, Ormond has substantial experience in the Grassroots AAU Basketball world.

Ormond was a two-year letterwinner at Texas-Pan American (now UT Rio Grande Valley) during the 1989-90, 1991-91 seasons. He graduated from Texas-Pan American with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology in 1991 and a master’s degree in education in 1993.

Coach Legans told me, “you guys are going to love Arturo.”

Also, "We are very fortunate to have Arturo join our staff...he is great at developing players and is well-connected in the recruiting world. Arturo brings a different level of experience to our staff and will be a great asset for our program.”

I am told Coach Legans would also like to bring in a fourth assistant, preferably with Australian ties.

I noticed all the top teams in WCC have an army of assistants. Bennett had six guys in matching outfits sitting on the bench between him and the players tonight.
