Just-promoted OSU basketball coach Mike Boynton produced a spark of energy Monday during his introductory news conference when he announced that Lamont Evans would remain on the staff and be associate head coach. Evans had been considered Brad Underwood‘s ace recruiter in their first year together at OSU.
“He could just as easily be standing right here,” Boynton said. “He’s a brother that I never had, a great friend and a tremendous coach and he will be standing here one day. I love him, and he knows that. That’s my co-coach.”
