Assistant Scott Duncan hired by Wyoming

Men's basketball coach Ben Howland will have to replace Tyler Honeycutt on the floor and, now, assistant coach Scott Duncan on his bench.

Duncan, who spent four seasons at UCLA, was named Tuesday as an assistant on Larry Shyatt's staff at Wyoming.

“I really appreciate all the hard work and dedication Scott gave to our program,” Howland said in a statement. “He did an outstanding job for us and I appreciate all of his efforts.

“I certainly wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

Said Duncan in a statement: "There are two reasons I decided to come back to Wyoming. The first is the relationship I have with Larry -- we are best friends. ... At this stage in my career, it is all about relationships and I am thrilled to be working with the people I am."
