Boise State men's basketball has elevated Phil Beckner title to Associate Head Coach.  This year will be Beckner's second season with the program.

Last season he helped the Broncos to a 20-win season and second-round appearance in the NIT in his first season on staff.

Coach Rice was quoted saying "He is ready for and has earned an increased leadership responsibility within our program."

It's been a whirlwind for the program as the team has lost three assistant coaches in the past 15 months.  The move to Beckner is just one day after the program named David Moats from Weber State the director of operations.
