Loyola Marymount wasted no time filling the head coaching vacancy left after the school announced Tuesday that he would not renew Max Good’s contract.
The Lions hired former Charlotte Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap on Wednesday to lead the program. Dunlap is a graduate of the school and also has college experience as a head coach at Division II Metro State (Colo.) and as an assistant at Arizona, Oregon and St. John’s.
Dunlap’s teams at Metro State won two national titles and posted a 248-50 record. He was the Bobcats’ head coach during the 2012-13 season.
“I love the challenge of coming to LMU, and love the fact I am going back home,” Dunlap said. “I am really comfortable with the southern California and northern California student-athlete that is going to end up at LMU, and I think this is a great fit.”
Dunlap takes over a team that and finished 13-19 overall and 4-14 in the West Coast Conference in 2013-14.
“His reputation is founded on being an outstanding player development coach and a game strategist of the highest level,” athletic director William Husak said in the release. “I would think that any player we currently have in our program or is committed to LMU would want to have the opportunity to develop and play under Mike Dunlap’s tutelage.
“His former players and coaches who have worked with him have provided me with anecdotes and feedback that their experience playing for and working with Mike was rewarding and transforming.”
