At 58, Ed Goorjian is coping with unemployment for the first time but is remarkably sanguine toward the administration at Loyola Marymount University, which said last week he would not be rehired for a sixth season as basketball coach. Goorjian, who had known only success in a long career as coach at Crescenta Valley High and one season at Glendale College, said this week his dismissal was "a shock . . . a little tough at first--it's the first time I've been out of a job since high school."

Hearn quoted the Santa Monica Evening Outlook in the report. Westhead, reached at his home, said he has "catagorically had no conversations with anyone at Loyola."

For the second time in three years, Loyola Marymount is looking to Division II Metro State in Denver for its next men's coach. Nearly a month after the university announced the resignation of Charles Bradley, former Loyola Marymount player and current Metro State Coach Mike Dunlap has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Bradley, according to sources close to the situation. Dunlap replaced Bradley at Metro State after Bradley took over the Lions before the 1997 season.
