UCLA basketball: Assistant coach Scott Duncan leaving for Wyoming

April 1, 2011 | 10:53 am

Scott Duncan, a UCLA assistant coach for the last four years under Ben Howland, is leaving to join longtime friend Larry Shyatt's staff at Wyoming, according to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly until the move was officially announced.

The pair had coached together previously at Wyoming and Clemson. Duncan, 55, was the Bruins' point man on recruiting since the departure of Kerry Keating and helped secure recruiting classes ranked in the top 15 the last two years.

Shyatt left Wyoming after the 1997-98 season, his first in Laramie, to take the Clemson job. He was recently rehired by Wyoming and given a five-year contract.
