Brad Huse Resigns as Bobcat Men's Head Basketball Coach

BOZEMAN -

Brad Huse resigned as Montana State University's head men's basketball coach on Tuesday, MSU Director of Athletics Peter Fields said.

Huse's decision came during a Tuesday morning meeting between the two. Fields told KFBB that Huse gave no reason for resigning, just that he felt it was time. 

"Brad offered his resignation during a meeting this morning, and I have accepted it," Fields said. "I want to thank him for his effort, dedication and integrity. I wish Brad and his family nothing but the best."

The Bobcats just concluded their eighth season with Huse as head coach with a 14-17 record, including a 9-11 finish in the Big Sky. The Cats started league play hot, winning four of their first five games before dropping six of seven. MSU still had a chance to make the Big Sky Conference Tournament, but an 0-3 finish eliminated them from postseason contention.

In Huse's tenure at MSU, he accumulated an overall record of 107-133. The Bobcats were 64-72 in Big Sky play under Huse. His win total is sixth in school history, and his eight seasons at the helm is the third-longest tenure in program annals. Prior to arriving at MSU Huse was an assistant at Montana and Montana State and head coach at Jamestown (N.D.) College.

Fields indicated that the search for MSU's 19th full-time head coach begins immediately, and that while he hopes to expedite the process, "hiring the right person is the most important factor."

As to what they hope to find in a new coach, Fields said, "We want to win games, we want to recruit, we want to win on the field and in the classroom, an all-around coach and someone who has integrity, somebody that has the ability to win the crowd."

Fields said Dr. George Haynes, MSU's Faculty Athletic Representative, will chair the search committee.
