This is a no-brainer UTEP basketball move that took a bit of reshuffling, that's all. Some raise eyebrows when this sort of thing happens, but it does happen.

Greg Foster, college degree newly in hand, can now be hired as a full-time college basketball coach.Great for UTEP and El Paso...

...Foster played at UTEP with [Tim] Hardaway and Antonio Davis  (our note: out of McClymonds High) in the late 1980s. He had a long NBA career. And he has good ties to the community (by marriage) He is an excellent fit in Utepia. He'll be a great ambassador for UTEP basketball, and certainly has good ties in the overall basketball world.
