SMU's latest target: Rick Majerus
SMU has swung and missed on a few head coaches. Now, according to sources, Saint Louis coach Rick Majerus is in play.
SMU is making a run at Saint Louis coach Rick Majerus.
Sources told CBSSports.com that SMU athletic director Steve Orsini has targeted the 64-year-old Majerus, who took Saint Louis to the third round of the NCAA tournament last month.
Majerus has won more than 500 career games in stops at Marquette, Ball State, Utah and Saint Louis. He returns everyone except for big man Brian Conklin off this year's Billikens squad, one that went 26-8 overall and 12-4 in the A-10.
On the surface, it seems like an odd hire due to Majerus' age and health issues. However, SMU wanted a head coach and a proven one at that -- and Majerus is one of the best X's and O's guys in the country.
