LMU Offers Job to Bill Bayno

Post by Stonehouse on Thu Apr 03, 2008 11:37 am

Just saw this from Fox Sports:

Former UNLV coach Bill Bayno is back in college.

Bayno, 45, who has been working with the Portland Trail Blazers for the last few years, has been offered the head coaching job at Loyola Marymount, according to sources close to the situation.

Bayno spent seven years as an assistant to John Calipari at UMass from 1988-95 before getting the job at UNLV. He was 94-65 in five-plus years in Vegas, leading the Running Rebels to a pair of NCAA tournament appearances.

However, he was fired in 2000 in the wake of a recruiting scandal involving Lamar Odom.

Since, Bayno has coached in the ABA and CBA.

The way I read it, Bayno has already accepted. From my stand point, this is a great hire for LMU. He's got a bit of baggage from his days at LMU, but if you read the recent article about him in the Portland Tribune (link below), it sounds like he's really turned his lfe around. I know Kevin Pritchard thinks highly of him, and for me that counts as a very high compliment indeed:

Very nice hire for LMU.

Okay, what's the next WCC job to get filled? I'm going out on a limb and saying Sean Sutton to USF.
