NORFOLK, Va. - Former Montana Grizzly great Larry Krystkowiak is back in basketball.
Krystkowiak was hired by Blaine Taylor on Wednesday as an assistant coach at Old Dominion University.
Taylor, a former Grizzly player and coach, took over at Old Dominion in April after three years as an assistant coach at Stanford.
"I have always had a great deal of respect and awareness for the way Larry has approached a challenge," Taylor said in an Old Dominion press release. "Having an Academic All-American, a tremendous pro, and an accomplished human being are all attributes which will aide him in our setting."
Krystkowiak played for the Grizzlies from 1984-88 and was a three-time Big Sky Conference MVP. He finished his career with 2,017 points and 1,105 rebounds, both school records.
Krystkowiak was a two-time Academic All-American and graduated from UM with a degree in business.
He was the 28th pick in the NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls. He played with San Antonio, Milwaukee, Chicago Utah, and the Los Angeles Lakers during his 11-year NBA career. He also layed pro ball in Paris and in the CBA.
Krystkowiak was an assistant coach at Montana from 1998-2000. He resigned as an assistant last spring and spent the last several months in Georgia.
Krystkowiak and his wife Jan have two sons, Cameron (2) and Luc, three months old.
