According to multiple published reports, St. John’s has offered its head basketball coaching job to former Red Storm player and legend Chris Mullin.
Mullin has yet to coach at the collegiate or pro level. Mullin was an All-American twice as a player at St. John’s and averaged 18.2 over a 16-year NBA career. He was the National player of the year in his senior at St. John’s in 1985.
Mullin has worked in the front offices of both the Golden State Warriors and most recently the Sacremento Kings. he has also done television work for ESPN.
A great hire in terms of pedigree basketball knowledge and a person. His ability as a college coach and recruiter, 100% unknown but worth the risk at St. John’s.
More to come.
