Montana’s coaching tree to be celebrated with ‘Roundball Roast’ fundraiser

Montana’s basketball program has one of the best coaching trees of any program in the country.

It sounds crazy, but it’s true.

As detailed last February, Michigan State legend Jud Heathcoate, former Stanford and Cal head coach Mike Montogomery, Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak, Oregon State head coach Wayne Tinkle, recently retired Utah State coach Stew Morrill and former Old Dominion head man Blaine Taylor all made their way through the Missoula campus.

That’s quite a legacy, and one that the program will be celebrating with a “Roundball Roast” fundraiser event in which the coaches will have a chance to ... well, roast each other.

Knowing these coaches -- how intense Krystkowiak and Tinkle can be, the personality of Taylor, etc. -- there’s no doubt that this event will be one worth watching.

It’s $150 a ticket.

So maybe we just hope that someone in there gets video of it?
