USC basketball assistant coach Jason Hart is a candidate for the Loyola Marymount job, which recently opened, according to sources. Ironically, LMU coach Mike Dunlap was also a former USC assistant.
Hart has recruited pretty much every player on the roster outside of Isaiah Mobley and USC would not want to lose him. He got a new contract and raise three years ago to turn down becoming an assistant at Washington.
At the same time, Hart has wanted to become a head coach and expressed interest in openings the past couple seasons. And this would allow him to become a head coach and still live in his native Southern California.
