UTEP continues to fill out its staff, brings along two of Terry’s assistants
Fresno State assistant coaches Brian Burton and Nick Matson will join Rodney Terry’s staff at UTEP, a source told Mountain West Wire on Tuesday.
Terry was introduced as the next UTEP men’s basketball head coach last week, and will bring along two of his Fresno State assistants.
Matson spent seven seasons under Terry in Fresno. He was promoted from director of basketball operations to assistant coach prior to the 2017-18 season. He has also spent time with Murray State and Stanford under Billy Kennedy and Johnny Dawkins, respectively.
Burton spent the past season – his first and only season with Fresno State – as the director of basketball operations. Already with ties to the state of Texas, Burton was previously an assistant at Lamar and Abilene Christian, as well as Utah.
Interim head coach Byron Jones is expected to vie for the full-time Fresno State head coaching position.
Fresno State was 21-11 this season, finishing fourth in the Mountain West with a 11-7 conference record.
