Adam Morrison Reportedly Joining Gonzaga Staff

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The former All-America will join as a student assistant...

After the departure of Ray Giacoletti, many Zag fans were looking for a 'splash' on the Gonzaga staff. I will go ahead and say that this qualifies as one. Arguably the greatest Zag of all time, Adam Morrison, will return to the McCarthey Athletic Center but this time he will do so as a coach. Morrison will be taking classes at Gonzaga and join the staff as a student assistant, Mark Few told CBS Sports' Gary Parrish.

As the third overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, Adam tore his ACL as a rookie in the middle of a promising campaign with the Charlotte Bobcats and sadly he could never recover. He spent a total of four seasons in the NBA and amassed two championship rings with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and 2010.

Brian Michaelson was recently promoted to fill Giacoletti's seat and has been out recruiting all summer. Morrison will likely have a role somewhat similar to Michaelson's in terms of scouting future opponents and other such tasks. With that said, he will command a great deal of respect from the players and should be able to impart some wisdom during practices and games.
