During the second day in Lexington the Rams had two practices and a 20 minute media session.
Larry Eustachy, the 2000 Associated Press and U.S. Basketball Writers Association National Coach of the Year, enters his first season at the helm of the Colorado State men's basketball program in 2012-13. He was introduced as the 19th head coach in the history of the CSU basketball on April 12, 2012.
A veteran mentor with more than 30 seasons of coaching experience - including 21 seasons as a head coach - Eustachy has amassed an impressive 402-258 record in stops at Idaho (1990-93), Utah State (1993-98), Iowa State (1998-03) and Southern Miss (2004-12), leading his squads to 10 campaigns of 20 or more victories, seven postseason berths (including four 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 has spent the last eight seasons at Southern Miss, where he resurrected the Golden Eagles program and led USM to four 20 win seasons, including each of the last three campaigns.
