I think the firing of Loyola Marymount basketball coach Jay Hillock is a tragedy and an injustice. Coach Hillock had overall winning records in his two seasons. He was committed not only to the athletic success of his players, but equally so to their academic success. Loyola Athletic Director Brian Quinn was quoted as saying: "I don't like losing in the first round of the (WCC) tournament." What you really don't like, Mr. Quinn, is the fact that you do not have the guts to back an excellent coach with a good record in the face of a very spoiled student body and alumni.

It is a sad state of affairs when a basketball program's promise is snuffed out rather than allowed to develop and grow. This year's Loyola Marymount team went 7-20, including a dismal defeat to Pepperdine in the first round of the WCC tournament. This after two winning seasons under the tutelage of former LMU coach Jay Hillock. Hillock was bushwhacked by unhappy fans and alumni. However, the real nemesis in this tragedy is Athletic Director Brian Quinn, who demonstrates a lack of experience and foresight in overseeing LMU's athletic programs.

Jay Hillock will succeed Paul Westhead as Loyola Marymount's basketball coach, according to sources close to the team. Hillock has been Westhead's top assistant for five years. A news conference at which an announcement will be made has been scheduled for noon today, the sources said. "Some players were upset upon hearing Friday that Coach Westhead was leaving, but they are calm now," Hillock said Sunday night. Hillock said Westhead would meet with the players today.

Jay Hillock, who had a winning record as Loyola Marymount's basketball coach but failed to live up to the high standards set by predecessor Paul Westhead, was fired Friday. During his two seasons as coach, Loyola was 31-28 overall and finished second and third in the West Coast Conference. His two-year contract expires in September.

Earlier this summer, Jay Hillock, assistant basketball coach at Loyola Marymount, was feeling low. He thought he might be getting pigeonholed as an assistant, and there were no other jobs in sight. He had applied at Florida International and didn't even make it to the interview stage. But Monday, Hillock was happy. And a head coach again. He was officially introduced as Paul Westhead's successor and the 19th coach at Loyola Marymount.

Eight months ago, when Hank Gathers collapsed on the floor of Gersten Pavilion during a game and died shortly thereafter, it all seemed like a surreal dream. So did the next three whirlwind weeks as the Loyola Marymount team focused its pain and sorrow and anger into a series of improbable NCAA tournament victories dedicated to their fallen leader.

Jay Hillock and Paul Westhead were preparing for basketball practice recently when an idle thought struck Hillock while he was stowing equipment. "You think it's been a long way down for you, coming from the Forum," Hillock teased Westhead, who used to coach the Lakers. "I've gone from head coach to equipment manager." Hillock tells the story with an impish grin, but there certainly have been some unexpected curves in the path followed by the 39-year-old assistant basketball coach at Loyola.

Thursday was one of those rare days in Los Angeles, so clear you could almost see the future, and Loyola Marymount basketball Coach Jay Hillock was clearly looking ahead. "I wish Oct. 15 (the official start of practice) was here," he said. Although the Lions managed to finish with a winning record (16-15)--an accomplishment considering they stumbled to a 2-7 start--they lost their last two and looked out of sync, leaving a sour last impression.
