Joe Castiglione got his guy.
Oklahoma’s athletic director will replace Lon Kruger at the helm of the Oklahoma basketball program with two-time NCAA Tournament Cinderella Porter Moser, of Loyola Chicago.
SI Sooners sources have confirmed multiple reports earlier Friday that the former Rambler man will helm OU hoops after posting a 188-140 record (.573) in 10 seasons at Loyola Chicago, famously taking his team to the 2018 Final Four and the 2021 Sweet Sixteen.
In 17 seasons as a college basketball head coach, Moser has a record of 293-241 (.549).
Moser’s Rambler teams caught the eyes of the nation not just for their deep tournament runs, but for the brand of basketball they play. With an efficient 3-point shooting offense and high-octane defense, Loyola Chicago and team chaplain Sister Jean became easy underdogs to root for.
