Scott Powers, along with other sources, reported late last night that former Loyola head coach Jim Whitesell accepted a job as an assistant at St. Louis University under head coach Rick Majerus.
It was only a week ago that Whitesell withdrew his name name from the coaching search at D-III UW-Eau Claire.
What's weird is that Whitesell is replacing Porter Moser on the SLU staff, who replaced Whitesell as head coach at Loyola. I guess Jesuit coaches are just interchangeable like that.
Like Moser, maybe Whitesell will resurface in four years as the head coach of Le Moyne or Fairfield or some other Jesuit team. He's a good guy that deserves a spot on a good staff.
