The already-small college basketball coaching world tightens further when sharing a state, as Dave Pilipovich and Larry Eustachy have for the past seven years.

For them, the connection shrinks even to the family level when considering Pilipovich’s son served as a student manager for the embattled Colorado State coach.

For them, the connection shrinks even to the family level when considering Pilipovich’s son served as a student manager for the embattled Colorado State coach.

So, Pilipovich – the Air Force basketball coach – brings a unique perspective to the controversy surrounding Eustachy, who was placed on administrative leave on Saturday as the program investigates his conduct.

“Coach Eustachy has really treated me well since he’s been at CSU,” Pilipovich said. “I’ve reached out to him, sent him a text and said I’m thinking of him and hopefully things will work their way out there. That’s been it.

“All I can say is how somebody treats me, and he has treated me with respect. He’s been very good to our players and always complimenting them on what they do and what they do after (graduation). And, lastly, our son spent a year as a manager with him. He welcomed him into his program, and Kyle’s a better man because of his experiences in that program. “
