Loyola still searching for assistant

It's been a big offseason for coaching shakeups in Chicago, and there's still one opening - Loyola needs a third assistant.

After being named to Loyola head coach Porter Moser's staff in April, former Eastern Illinois assistant Michael Lewis resigned after less than three weeks on the job to take a position at Butler. Sounds like all kinds of awkward.

In the wake of Lewis' exit Loyola has yet to find a replacement to complete Moser's staff, but they're searching. This ad is proof.

Northwestern previously faced a similar staff gap when assistant Mitch Henderson was named the new head coach at Princeton. Earlier this week his replacement, former Rutgers head coach Fred Hill, was officially announced.

Tavaras Hardy was promoted to associate head coach of the Wildcats in May.

UIC quietly replaced assistant Mike Mennenga during the offseason after his first season under head coach Howard Moore. His replacement, Stew Robinson, is a genuine upgrade. Robinson assisted at Texas Tech under Bob Knight and played for Knight at Indiana.
