Altron Jackson joins USF staff as manager



Former USF forward Altron Jackson, who played for the Bulls from 1999-2002 and remained Conference USA's career scoring leader until last season, has returned to USF as a manager on Stan Heath's staff.


"He's helping out on the court with us. He's doing a great job," Heath said. "I think he's made that separation from a player to now transitioning to a guy who's going to be kind of a coach. The first few days, I had to say 'Look, guys, this is one of the better players that has played in a Bulls uniform, a terrific player."

Jackson, from Sarasota's Riverview High, finished his career with 2,017 points and remains second on the Bulls' career scoring list behind Charlie Bradley.

-- Former USF point guard Chris Capko, who worked as a graduate assistant at Marshall last season, has been hired as a full-time assistant coach at Stetson University.
