Morrison to join Zags coaching staff

Adam Morrison is set to join the coaching staff of Gonzaga Bulldogs men’s basketball team, head coach Mark Few told on Thursday.

Morrison’s star power at Gonzaga was unmatched. He was a co-player of the year along with Duke’s J.J. Reddick in 2006, averaging 28.1 points per game.

His new stint with the team will be as a student assistant, Few told the sports website.

“It’ll be great,” Few is quoted in the story. “The players really respect him.” Morrison also is reportedly set to take classes.

He was a first-team All-America player and led the Zags to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. The mustachioed forward starred at Mead before taking his talents to Gonzaga.

He was the third pick in the 2006 NBA Draft and spent four years in the NBA.
