Duncan headed to Wyoming

Sources are indicating that UCLA men’s basketball assistant coach Scott Duncan is going to be hired as an assistant at Wyoming, and that an announcement could come shortly from the Cowboys.

Duncan was hired by head coach Ben Howland in 2007 after seven seasons with Ernie Kent at Oregon. He will be rejoining new (and old) Wyoming head coach Larry Shyatt, who returns to the Cowboys after assisting Billy Donovan at Florida. Duncan previously coached with Shyatt at Wyoming in 1997-98 and then at Clemson for two seasons.

This is UCLA’s second coaching change in two seasons: Phil Mathews was hired last season to replace Donny Daniels, who left for an assistant coaching position at Gonzaga.
