In one of the NCAA tournament's most iconic plays, UCLA guard Tyus Edney drives the ball the length of the court in 4.8 court seconds, using a behind-the-back dribble on the way to putting up a buzzer-beater that goes off glass and in.

The shot beat Missouri in that 1995 second-round tournament game, and the Bruins went on to win the national championship.

Fifteen years later, Edney is looking to get into college coaching, according to Frank Burlison of the Long Beach Press-Telegram.


"I went to the Final Four [in Indianapolis] to let people know I wanted to get into coaching," he said.

"And I've met with four or five other head coaches [including Ben Howland at UCLA and Dan Monson at Long Beach State] since. Hopefully, I'll find some opportunity before too long."

Edney is back in Southern California these days looking for work after an NBA and overseas playing career.

On his résumé? Some high school coaching experience, a championship ring and a play that will be remembered for some time.
