Joe O'Brien will coach in Simms.  The school board voted 4-3 to hire the former Montana State Assistant coach.

O'Brien used to coach for MSU, but was arrested in 2003.  He was accused of  possessing methamphetamines with the intent to sell.

O'Brien spent just over 2 years in prison and 6 years on probation.

O'Brien says he's turned his life around and wants to return to coaching.
