Larry Eustachy, the 2000 Associated Press and U.S. Basketball Writers Association National Coach of the Year, enters his third season as head coach of the Colorado State men's basketball program in 2014-15. He was introduced as the 19th head coach in the history of the CSU basketball on April 12, 2012.

In his first year at the helm, Eustachy led the Rams to arguably the best season in school history, guiding the squad to a program-best 26-9 record, and an NCAA Tournament victory over the Missouri Tigers before bowing out against eventual national champion Louisville.

The Rams cracked the Associated Press top 25 for first time since 1954, and in the process Eustachy became the only head coach in NCAA Division I history to lead five different programs - Colorado State, Southern Miss, Iowa State, Utah State and Idaho - to 24 or more wins in a single season.

A veteran mentor with more than 30 seasons of coaching experience - including 23 seasons as a head coach - Eustachy has amassed an impressive 426-267 record in stops at Idaho (1990-93), Utah State (1993-98), Iowa State (1998-03) and Southern Miss (2004-12) and CSU (2012-present), leading his squads to 11 campaigns of 20 or more victories, eight postseason berths (including five NCAA tournament appearances), and six conference championships.

Eustachy, a native of Alameda, Calif., and a 1979 graduate of Long Beach State University, has garnered numerous coaching honors throughout his illustrious career. In addition to his two National Coach of the Year nods in 2000, he was also the 2001 runner-up for the AP's top coaching honor.

He was twice named the Big West and Big 12 Coach of the Year during stints at Utah State (1995 and 1998) and Iowa State (2000 and 2001), respectively, and joins the Rams after leading his Southern Miss Golden Eagles' squad to 25 wins in 2011-12 to earn the 2012 Conference USA Coach of the Year award. Eustachy is also the reigning National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) District 11 Coach of the Year.

Eustachy's coaching career began at the age of 22 as an assistant coach at Citrus (Calif.) College, where he played two seasons after a standout prep career at Arcadia High School. From 1981-90 Eustachy honed his skills as an assistant at Division I schools Mississippi State (1981-86), Idaho (1986-87), Utah (1987-89) and Ball State (1989-90) before taking his first head coaching job at Idaho (1990-93).

Following his stint at Idaho, Eustachy spent five seasons (1993-98) as the head coach at Utah State (1993-98). He then took over for close friend Tim Floyd at Iowa State, spending five seasons in Ames, Iowa, and leading the Cyclones to the Elite Eight in the 2000 NCAA tournament.

Eustachy spent the previous eight seasons at Southern Miss, where he resurrected the Golden Eagles program and led USM to four 20 win seasons, including each of his last three campaigns in Hattiesburg.

Eustachy is a native of Alameda, Calif. He and his wife Lana live in Fort Collins. Eustachy has two sons, Hayden and Evan.
