Former LSU interim head coach Benford hired as TCU assistant

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Tony Benford has been hired as an assistant men's basketball coach at TCU after finishing last season as interim head coach for LSU's run to the Sweet 16.

Benford was head coach at North Texas from 2012-17 before being an LSU assistant the past two years. He was part of Texas Tech's 1985 Southwest Conference championship as a player, and later was an assistant coach at Marquette, Nebraska, UTEP, Arizona State and New Mexico.
