Bankhead previously was working as an assistant coach at Abilene Christian, and prior to that was on the coaching staff of UNC Greensboro as a director of basketball operations and assistant coach.
This will be Bankhead’s third tour through the WCC. In addition to his four years as a Gonzaga sharpshooter, Bankhead was an assistant coach at San Diego for eight years.
Bankhead played for Gonzaga in the 2001-04 seasons. He broke into the starting lineup his junior year, averaging 26.9 minutes and scoring 7.5 points per game. He is one of the all-time three-point threats in Gonzaga history, holding a career 45.3 percent from long range. His 169 three pointers made are sixth-most in Gonzaga history and his career three-point percentage is seventh-best in WCC history.
Congratulations Kyle—hope all of your success comes in any game that is not one of the two against Gonzaga!
