ST. LOUIS (AP) -Saint Louis hired Rick Majerus on Friday, a move that signals the school's intentions of becoming a Top 50 national program.
Father Lawrence Biondi, the school president, announced the hiring in a statement. Majerus, a college basketball analyst for ESPN the last three years, has a career record of 422-147 with 15 postseason appearances.
The school will introduce Majerus at a conference Monday morning.
``I am extremely excited about having a person of Rick Majerus stature and reputation at the helm of our men's basketball team,'' Biondi said. ``I know that we are now headed to take our men's basketball team to the next level.''
The school and Majerus had been negotiating for several days, beginning not long after Brad Soderberg was fired after failing to lead the school to the NCAA tournament in any of his five seasons. Saint Louis hasn't been to the NCAAs since 2000.
