#OKState hoops: Mike Boynton will hire David Kontaxis from James Madison as an assistant, per source. Story coming.— Mark Cooper (@mark_cooperjr) June 2, 2017
Kontaxis spent the last season as an assistant coach at James Madison in the Colonial Athletic Conference.
While there, Kontaxis and another assistant were suspended two games for violating athletics department policy, though it was reportedly not related to any legal troubles or NCAA violations.
Before his year at James Madison, Kontaxis spent seven years working Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) organizations in North Carolina, Virginia and Washington. Prior to that, Kontaxis’ previous collegiate experience came at William and Mary, where he was director of basketball operations in 2008-09.
The addition of Kontaxis completes Boynton’s coaching staff. He joins Lamont Evans who was held over from the previous staff, and former Miami of Ohio head coach John Cooper.
It was originally reported that OSU would hire Florida Gulf Coast assistant Michael Fly to fill the final assistant spot, however Fly ended up staying at FGU.
