If you ask Max Good if he has been around the block in the world of college coaching, be prepared to laugh uncontrollably, blush slightly and become overwhelmed at the number of people that have been touched and positively influenced by the fact that Good has been a basketball coach.
 
And the passionate, charsmatic coach of 40 years brings that influence to the LMU men's basketball program. And ask his players, both current and former, and they couldn't be more excited.
 
"We went through a lot in my first season at LMU, but it was Coach Good who kept us believing in ourselves and in our teammates," said guard Jarred DuBois. "Good really gets on us at pracitce and in games because he wants us to succeed and win. But at the end of the day, he cares for us like any parent would. I have a lot of respect for him, and I am excited for what he will lead us to in the coming years."
 
That's exactly what LMU Athletics Director Dr. WIlliam Husak was looking for when he named Good head coach.
 
"In selecting our next head coach, one only needs to read Max's resume to learn what an outstanding coach he has been at every level that he has worked," said Husak. "His reputation as a master teacher and strategist who expects the very best of his players is well documented. Coach Good did an outstanding job in maintaining the development and spirit of this program through a trying first year, and because of Max this program is on the verge of great things."
 
Good, who officially took over the program as the 25th coach in school history on Jan. 12, 2009, is in his third season leading the Lions and is no stranger to running a program. This is his 19th season as a head coach at the NCAA level, coaching eight seasons at Bryant College (2001-08) prior to joining LMU. He also coached at UNLV for one season (2000-01) and eight seasons at Eastern Kentucky University (1981-89). In addition, his impact hasn't been just at the college level as he was the head coach at the New England prep school Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield, Maine, for 10 seasons (1990-00).
 
Good had an NCAA head coaching record of 241-224 prior to this coming to LMU and now has a record of 263-64 heading into the 2010-11 season.

Julie Wilhoit
Julie Wilhoit
Julie Wilhoit enters her 16th season as the head coach of the Loyola Marymount University women's basketball program. The West Coast Conference Coach of the Year three of her seasons at LMU, she has steered the Lions to an average of 17 wins a season from 2000-10, including LMU's first ever WCC Championship, an appearance in the 2003-04 NCAA Tournament, and an appearance in the WNIT Tournament in 2000-01. The Lions have also been invited to play in the Preseason WNIT twice in the last six years. At home that record becomes even more astounding as Wilhoit's Lions are 87-43 in Gersten Pavilion over the last nine years.
 
Wilhoit became the winningest coach in LMU women's basketball history with a 66-63 victory over IUPUI on December 18, 2003. On February 2, 2008, she recorded her 300th career win as a head coach with a 68-64 victory at San Francisco. She reached 200 victories at LMU just over a year later, hitting the milestone in LMU's 71-60 win over Santa Clara at the WCC Tournament on March 7, 2009.
 
Wilhoit was the first LMU women's basketball coach to earn the WCC Coach of the Year honor in 1999-00. She repeated the feat the following year to become only the second coach in WCC history to garner the award two years in a row. In 2004, she added to her honors by winning the WCC award for the third time in five years. She was also named the Russell Athletic/WBCA Regional Coach of the Year for Region 8. The region represents head coaches from the Pac-10, Big West, and West Coast Conferences. She was a national finalist for the NCAA Division I Russell Athletic/WBCA Coach of the Year award.
 
In 15 seasons on the Bluff, Wilhoit has led LMU through a march from the bottom half of the conference finishers to the top. Due in large part to Wilhoit's direction and leadership, the Lions have become a consistent top tier WCC team and broke into the national spotlight with their record-breaking season in 2003-04. That year, the Lions finished with the best record west of Montana, and the 13th best record in the nation. LMU received votes in both the USA Today/ESPN Top 25 poll and the AP poll.
 
Under Wilhoit's direction, the program has continued a process of constant improvement. The 2000-01 squad exemplified that by recording the program's first ever 20-win season. The 2001-02 Lions posted a 15-13 overall mark for the program's first ever back-to-back winning seasons, and the 2003-04 team shattered LMU's record books.
