The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) has named two Big 12 Men’s Basketball assistant coaches to its 2017-18 Under Armour 30-under-30 list, recognizing a group of up-and-coming young coaches.
TCU’s Thomas Montigel and Texas’ Jai Lucas were named among the list of 30. Montigel was a four-year letterman for the Horned Frogs from 2011-14 and was a two-time Academic All-Big 12 honoree. He joined the TCU staff as a graduate assistant in 2014.
Lucas recently completed his fifth year on the UT coaching staff, including his second as an assistant. He played two seasons at Texas and helped the Longhorns to a pair of NCAA appearances in 2010 and 2011.
