1. When Rick Majerus decided to take a leave of absence for health reasons, the news was concerning.
When he announced he wasn’t coming back to the Billikens at all, it was alarming.
Now the true extent of Majerus’ health issues has become known. Multiple sources, including Majerus’ protege and current Loyola (Chicago) head coach Porter Moser, have confirmed that Majerus passed away today at the age of 64.

Details are in short supply at this time, but CBT will update the story as more news comes to light.
Majerus began his career with the then-independent Marquette Warriors, and jumped to Ball State after three years in Milwaukee. He became best known as head man of the Utah Utes, making it all the way to the NCAA title game in 1998. He led St. Louis to a 26-8 record and an NCAA berth in his final season as Billikens head coach.
Majerus’ overall record as a collegiate head coach was 517-215.
