Stan Morrison Drops Out

Stan Morrison, a preliminary finalist for the Cal State Fullerton men's basketball head coach position, will remain as Athletic Director at UC Riverside, according to Ross French, Director of Athletics Media Relations at UC Riverside.

French, who will make the announcement tomorrow, said Morrison had withdrawn himself from consideration earlier this morning.

Morrison is expected to cite personal reasons for his decision to leave but it is speculated that the strong number of candidates applying for the opening had something to do with the decision.

Five preliminary candidates remain, and they include the following:

  • Bob Burton (Assistant Coach, Fresno St. / Long-time Head Coach at West Valley Community College).
  • Sidney Green (Head Coach, Florida Atlantic University / Former All-American at UNLV).
  • Tom Green (Head Coach, Fairleigh Dickinson University / Former Player at Syracuse).
  • Rod Jensen (Assistant Coach, University of Virginia / Former Head Coach at Boise State).
  • Jim Saia (Former Assistant Coach, UCLA, Fresno State, Indiana State, Cal / Former Head Coach at Columbia College (JC).
