OGDEN -- One of the 50 greatest players in Weber State men's basketball history will be back on the bench at the Dee Events Center next season as an assistant coach.
Kellen McCoy is expected to be officially announced by the school Tuesday.
McCoy, listed at just 5-foot-6, made a big impact on the Big Sky Conference in just two seasons in Ogden. The point guard led the Wildcats to a 15-1 league record in 2008-09 and was named Big Sky MVP as a senior, averaging a team-best 14.1 points per game while shooting 47.3 percent from beyond the arc during conference games.
The Norman, Okla., native played at Northern Oklahoma College before transferring to Weber State to play for head coach Randy Rahe in 2007-08.
McCoy was a grad assistant for the University of Oklahoma men's basketball team last year and was previously an assistant at Division II school Emporia State in Kansas. He played professional basketball in Sweden for two seasons, averaging 18.4 points per game for Boras Basket in 2010-11.
McCoy replaces Keith Berard, who served one season as an assistant at WSU.
