Saint Louis will announce Jim Crews as its permanent coach on Friday.
A press conference is scheduled on campus.
Crews was an assistant on Rick Majerus' staff before being named interim head coach last preseason when Majerus, who died in December, took a leave of absence. At the time, the idea that Crews would get the job full-time seemed unlikely. But he guided the Billikens to a 28-7 record and an A-10 title and, in the process, Crews positioned himself as a viable candidate to land the position, which he's now done.
The 59-year-old former Indiana player was the 2013 NABC Coach of the Year.
