A former UTEP basketball star will be back on the Don Haskins Center floor this season - this time, as an undergraduate assistant coach on coach Tim Floyd's staff. Greg Foster, the 6-foot-11 center who played for UTEP in the 1980s, has spent years trying to break into the college coaching ranks and is now going to get his shot. "A lot of people are trying to re-invent themselves. I'm no different," Foster said. After dabbling in real estate and as a sports agent with Foster Sports Development, the 41-year-old is finally getting his shot at coaching. "I feel fortunate to have this opportunity," Foster said. "Sometimes it's not what you know, but who you know." KVIA.com
