Micah Shrewsberry is gone, headed to Penn State.
Steve Lutz is gone, headed to Texas Corpus-Christi.
Not only are our top two assistants gone, we will be losing our graduate assistants as well. Grady Eifert and P.J. Thompson has used their 2 seasons at Purdue as Grad Assistants.
So, not only are we replacing the “coordinators” of the basketball team, we will be replacing two spots with up and coming coaches as well.
For Steve Lutz’ position that is seen as the defensive coach, the first name that comes to mind is long time friend of Coach Matt Painter, in Paul Lusk, who once served as an assistant coach under Matt Painter.
