Colorado State introduced Larry Eustachy as its basketball Thursday. The 56-year-old Eustachy comes to the Rams from Southern Mississippi, where directed the Golden Eagles to a 25-9 record - 11-5 in Conference USA - and the school's first NCAA tournament appearance since 1991. Southern Mississippi was 142-113 in eight seasons under Eustachy. During 19 seasons, he is 402-258 at Idaho, Utah State, Iowa State and Southern Mississippi. Eustachy, the 19th coach at Colorado State, replaces Tim Miles, who left the Rams on March 24 to take the job at Nebraska. Miles led the Rams this season to the NCAA Tournament. It's been a long road for Eustachy, who rebuilt and restored his career at Southern Miss. He resigned at Iowa State in 2003 shortly after photos of him partying with students surfaced.
