Corpus Christi, Texas — At a press conference Thursday, the Islanders introduced former Purdue Assistant Coach Steve Lutz as the new Men’s Head Basketball Coach.
Lutz is the successor to Willis Wilson, who announced his retirement a few weeks ago. “We really feel the chance to be the best basketball school in the league,” Lutz said.
Call this homecoming because of his strong Texas bond. Originally from San Antonio, he began his career as a Division 1 coach as an SFA assistant after playing for Texas Lutheran.
He also coached SMU and Incarnate Word. He firmly believes that Texas roots give him a great advantage in hiring great players. “I’ve been recruiting this state for 26 years and you won’t have a relationship overnight,” Lutz said.
“In this state, I feel my relationship is incredibly strong. I have great products for sale on the island and I’m going to play a fun brand of basketball and win the game.”
