Josh Pastner is hiring former NBA Rookie of the Year Damon Stoudamire as an assistant on the Memphis staff, a source told CBSSports.com on Monday.

A formal announcement is expected soon.

Stoudamire, 37, played at Arizona like Pastner and has been an assistant with the Memphis Grizzlies since 2009. He spent 13 seasons as a player in the NBA and will join Jack Murphy on the Tigers staff. Pastner still has one spot left to fill because Willis Wilson and Glynn Cyprien both left after last season. Wilson took the head coaching position at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Cyprien is now an assistant for Billy Kennedy at Texas A&M.

I'm still waiting on this great coach Josh Pastner to show up.  Memphis fans seem to love a guy that has yet to win them a NCAA Tournament game in 2 years.  At most basketball schools thats called the hot seat.  At Memphis he's called the next great thing.  And they wonder why they can't get any respect.  Go figure!

There he is.  Mr. Memphis himself!  Everytime I see a Memphian wearing a Kensucky shirt I wonder is that... nah. 

Yes Kevin Memphis fans do love Josh Pastner and he hasn't won an NCAA Tournament game nor has he beaten a top 25 team yet.  But he got Memphis into the NCAA tournement in his second year something Cal took three years to do and had a top 3 recruiting class in his first year of recruiting. Cal didn't do that either.  So yeah we're pretty happy with him.

Rupp so you're saying that when Cal has his first final four vacated at Kentucky that you won't count it as a final four?  I payed a lot of money to go and my bank still counts it that I went so I still count it as well.  But will you?

Are you serious? Memphis has more history then Arizona.  Without Olsen, you would be the Nebraska of the Pac 10/12.  Yeah, you won a championship under Olsen, but what else?  Basketball in the city of Memphis is lightyears ahead of Arizona.  Memphis basketball goes back more then 20 years...look it up
I took it upon myself to look it up.

Wins- Mem-1406  Zona-1603
Final Fours- Mem-1 (1973) Zona-4 (88, 94,97,01)
Vacated Final fours- Mem-2 (85, 08) Zona-0
Elite Eight- Mem-4 (first in 73) Zona-9 (first in 76)
Tourny app.-Mem-23 Zona-29
Conference Reg Season Champs- Mem-11 (all since 1972 and all in mid-major conferences) Zona-25 (starting in 1932 with 12 in the Pac-10 since 1986)
Memphis National Runner-Up in 76, Arizona National Champion in 97 and Runner-Up in 01.

Memphis has history in the Metro and Conf. USA. You should go brag on Tulsa and UAB boards.

Boy you Memphis people really want to became the next great Arizona but trust me it will take more then Josh Pastner and Damon Stoudamire to make the little Memphis Tigers to a great power house basketball school like Arizona but at least you guys are trying an't that right little cubs.



Why would anyone want to be the next Arizona?  It does take more than coaches to become an elite program.  Like maybe a few McDonalds All Americans plucked freshly from your backyard?  Have you seen our roster?  A bunch of freshmen almost beat your team and the number one pick in the draft.

Lee, nothing happens on the U of M campus. Trust me, people don't go there to party or get high. Some people call it a commuter school. Students looking to have fun head south, specifically to Oxford, MS.

Yes - Steve-O - you need to get over yourself, Tigers and Wilcats have mutual respect and usually play nice (unless it's gametime between the two teams).

If you can't give respect, the you should follow next poster's advice and go SVCK.lT.BlTCH
