A 16th-ranked recruiting class wasn’t enough to keep Bill Armstrong with the Rebel basketball program as the long-time assistant coach has taken a job at LSU, according to multiple reports. Armstrong spent 11 years in Oxford, five as the Coordinator of Basketball operations, and the last six as an assistant to head coach Andy Kennedy. 
Armstrong played basketball at UAB from 1998-2001, where he met Kennedy who was an assistant coach on the staff at the time. OleMissSports.com credits Armstrong with tutoring Rebel standouts including Marshall Anderson, Sebastian Saiz and Stefan Moody. 
Armstrong will become the third assistant on LSU’s staff under new head coach Will Wade. LSU was one of the worst teams in the conference last year, finishing 10-21 overall and an abysmal 2-16 in the SEC, which led to the firing of head coach Johnny Jones.
