Former Michigan State basketball PG Tum Tum Nairn gets assistant coaching job

·1 min read

Tum Tum Nairn’s name was thrown around when Michigan State had an assistant coach vacancy, but he wasn’t chosen for the job. Nairn, a standout guard and captain at Michigan State from 2015-2018, is building a nice start to a coaching career. Fresh out of college, Nairn joined the Phoenix Suns in a player development role. He parlayed that into a role with Sunrise Christian Academy, one of the premiere schools in high school basketball.

Now, Nairn has been given an opportunity to coach at the collegiate level. Southern Utah head coach Todd Simon is hiring Nairn as an assistant coach on his staff.

Southern Utah competes in the Western Athletic Conference.
