TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Casper College announced that former CSI Men's Basketball coach Lester Stewart will be an assistant coach for the Thunderbirds.
Casper is coming off a 32-3 year, in which they won the Region IX Championship and advanced to the NJCAA National Tournament in Kansas. One of their losses was actually to CSI in the Scottsbluff tournament.
Stewart is excited to work for newly promoted head coach, Shawn Gutting who was a longtime assistant.
At CSI, he ran the study hall for the Golden Eagles, worked on player development, on the floor coaching and spent time recruiting. He guided the 2017-18 team to Academic All-American status and a national runner-up finish.
"My time at CSI was great. I met some phenomenal people that I hope to continue building relationships with," he explained. "I hope the best for CSI, it's a wonderful place. I'm very fortunate I got my start in college coaching at CSI."
