Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman had nothing but praise for his newest hire to the staff.

“Todd is exceptionally detailed and specific. He is a veteran coach and he’s here to serve as an additional pair of eyes. He will bring new ideas to the staff on how to view things, how to scheme on both ends of the court and how to attack things. It’s always been a collective deal on our staffs. We are always looking for ideas and input which is why and how our staff has been assembled. One of the things about being a former head coach is, when you’re not a head coach, you know what it takes to be a great assistant and Todd Lee will be a perfect fit in that regard.”

Lee was the 2020-2021 Summit League coach of the year, but injuries halted the success of USD in regards to building on the previous season and USD decided to go in a different direction.

From Frybread to Pheasants - Here are South Dakota's Official State Things

Here is what we have so far in Wyoming. Thanks to the South Dakota Secretary of State's Office for the info:
