With all this man's success at this level, it's no surprise that his services are in high demand.

Montana State men's basketball has seen a resurgence over the past few years, thanks to head coach Danny Sprinkle. Danny Sprinkle played basketball at Montana State in the mid-90s and was a member of the last Bobcat squad to qualify for the NCAA Tournament.

Since he stepped back in Bozeman, he has lifted the men's basketball program to new heights, and the community has rallied behind them. The Montana State men's basketball program has won back-to-back conference tournaments and the first time in program history made the NCAA Tournament in back-to-back seasons.

The future seemed bright for the Bobcat basketball program, but this future hit a snag today.

406 MT Sports is reporting that the head coach for the Bobcats, Danny Sprinkle, has accepted the head coaching position at Utah State.

Danny Sprinkle will coach a Utah State squad that made the NCAA Tournament last year as a ten seed.

This was inevitable for Danny Sprnkile. We have to be realistic here. Danny Sprinkle came into coaching a Montana State basketball program known to finish in the middle of the pack. The last time the Bobcats won a conference title before Sprinkle showed up was in 2001.

Danny Sprinkle leaves the men's basketball program in fantastic shape with back-to-back twenty-win seasons, conference titles, and multiple NCAA tournament appearances. The Montana State men's basketball program couldn't be better.

Are we sad to see Danny Sprinkle leave? Yes, but he's too good of a coach to stay at Montana State, and we wish him the best of luck.

We now have to wait to see who Montana State will hire to replace Sprinkle.
