According to the Williamsport Sun Gazette, Mussina will receive a $4,170 stipend for his work with the team. He will replace Mark Molesky, who will become his first assistant.
The 44-year-old graduated from Montoursville in 1987, having garnered 1,382 points as a high school basketball player.
So what do Montoursville students think about their new head coach?
USA Today found this tweet from one of Mussina's future charges, rising junior Quinten Persun:
