Much has been made of Ben Howland's experience as a GU assistant coach back in the Stockton era. But, there is another Zag assistant coach from that era who is part of Howland's brain trust. Joe Hillock, who was a GU assistant for a decade under Fitz and brother Jay Hillock, is UCLA's director of basketball operations, the same role Jerry Krause has for the Zags. After his stint at GU, Joe was the head women's coach at the University of Southern Utah.

Wasn't he an exec in the NBA for a bit?

Taking over NCAA basketball... one spot at a time.

Not long before Gonzaga forms its own new superconference and GU alums in place at prestigious programs around the nation will uproot their schools and join them into our conference. And we will call ourselves the "BBC" (best basketball conference) and call all other schools "sub majors" and all will be right in the world.
