Back on March 19, I asked St. Laurence athletic director Tim Chandler what requirements he was looking for in his search to replace basketball coach Mark Sevedge, whom the school had let go.
“We’re looking for someone who has knowledge of the Catholic League and has ties to the Chicago basketball world; someone with name recognition and who can attract some of the top talent to St. Laurence. We prefer someone with strong ties to AAU. We’re going to put a committee together and find the guy,” Chandler said.
That’s quite a wish list, but it appears St. Laurence found its man in Jim Maley.
