ST. LOUIS (AP) - Saint Louis is removing the interim tag from Jim Crews' job description after a record-setting season, naming him head coach.
Crews led the Billikens to a 28-7 record, the most victories in school history, as interim coach in place of Rick Majerus, who died in December. Saint Louis was the Atlantic 10 regular season and conference tournament champion and was a No. 4 seed in the Midwest Regional before losing to Oregon in the third round.
The school set a Friday afternoon news conference to introduce Crews.
Crews was runner-up for AP's coach of the year and was named national coach of the year by The Sporting News and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. He joined Majerus' staff as an assistant in 2011-12, helping the school end a 12-year NCAA tournament drought.
