Rick Stansbury is back in college basketball and back in the SEC, as the former Mississippi State coach has joined Texas A&M as an assistant coach, sources confirmed to CBSSports.com.

The news was first reported by TexAgs.com.

Stansbury parted ways with Mississippi State back in 2012 after three straight seasons without an NCAA Tournament appearance. In 14 seasons as the head coach of the Bulldogs, they went 293-165 and made six trips to the NCAA Tournament. There was always plenty of talent in Starkville, but chemistry issues marred the end of his tenure.

Billy Kennedy has been the head coach of Texas A&M for three seasons, and the Aggies are coming off an 18-16 campaign.
