John Stockton is introduced as Montana State women’s basketball’s new assistant coach Tuesday.

One of the NBA’s greatest floor generals is starting an NCAA coaching career in a low-profile position.

Hall of Famer John Stockton is joining the Montana State women’s basketball team as an assistant coach for the upcoming season, a move that coincides with his daughter, Lindsay, being on the team as a senior guard.

Stockton said in a statement Tuesday that head coach Tricia Binford “took a flier” and asked if he’d be interested in the position. He has watched the team as a spectator for the last three seasons.

“I’m excited about the prospect of working with the kids,” Stockton said.

Stockton, 53, previously coached his daughter at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane, Washington. He played 19 years with the Utah Jazz and is the NBA’s all-time leader in assists and steals.
