Jackson hired at Montana St.

Eric Jackson, a veteran coach with ties to the Pacific Northwest and roots traced to some of college basketball’s legendary coaches, joined the Montana State men’s basketball coaching staff Friday.

Third-year coach Brian Fish said Jackson’s addition strengthens the Bobcats on several fronts.

“Eric is a strong recruiter who is instantly credible with players because of his background as a player and as a coach,” Fish said. “I’ve known him for several years and have always admired his energy and loyalty.”
