The coaches that have followed him have gone on to make their own significant marks in college basketball at places like Stanford, Old Dominion, and Utah to name a few. Ryan and Colter sat down with every Montana head men’s basketball coach who followed Jud Heathcote to talk about what makes Montana basketball and Missoula special.
