LOS ANGELES -- LMU Head Men's Basketball Coach Max Good announced that assistant coach Jason Levy has left the program to pursue another coaching opportunity in college basketball. Levy was with Coach Good since the beginning, finishing his fifth year with the Lions this past season.
"We are really disappointed that Jason is leaving us," said Good. "He has been instrumental in helping us build over the years and he will be missed. With that said, this next opportunity is a good one for him, and we are happy for him and wish him nothing but the best."
While his new position has yet to be officially announced, Levy will remain coaching in Southern California.
Levy was a big part of the program's memorable wins over the last five years under Good, including a three-game winning streak in the West Coast Conference Championships this past March that saw the Lions advance to the semifinals for the second time in three years. LMU, Gonzaga and Saint Mary's are the only WCC teams to reach the quarterfinals and beyond in each of the last four years.
Good has begun looking for a replacement to the assistant coach position and hopes to have something in place when recruiting hits its peak this summer.
"We are very excited about the players we have returning and the newcomers we have coming in," said Good. "This summer will be big for us and everyone is very excited to get back on the court as soon as possible."
The Lions will lose four players from last year's team in graduating seniors Ashley Hamilton and Taylor Walker, sophomore guard Bruce English, who will transfer, and freshman Taj Adams, who was dismissed from the program.
