Platt has nine years of head coaching experience, the latest at Charleston Southern from 2000-05 and was an assistant at Army from 2005-10, with four of those seasons under Crews. Last season he was the director of basketball operations at Liberty.
Crews is filling in for Rick Majerus, who took a medical leave of absence in August while undergoing evaluation for an ongoing heart condition in California. Saint Louis was 24-8 last season and made its first NCAA tournament appearance since 2000.
