Hauser Leaving UL Basketball; Marlin to Promote Crow
After three seasons as an assistant coach, Louisiana's Gus Hauser has tendered his resignation to assist in a family run business in Kentucky.
Cajuns' head coach Bob Marlin confirmed Hauser's departure, which was first reported by Basketball Times writer Josh Parrott (@JoshuaParrott) Thursday night.
Marlin also confirmed he plans to promote Director of Student-Athlete Development Joston Crow to Hauser's position, also reported by Parrott.
Hauser spent three seasons with the Cajuns after stints at Wofford, Coastal Carolina, UL Monroe, New Mexico State and Louisville. The Cajuns were 64-41 in his three years in Lafayette.
"Gus told me last week he felt the time was right for him to head back home," Marlin said. "He worked hard to make us better and we appreciate that and wish him nothing but success in the future."
Crow played for Marlin for three seasons before joining the Cajuns as a graduate assistant in the 2011-12 season before playing overseas professionally for three years. He received his business degree in three years from Sam Houston State and received his MBA from SHSU in 2012.
"Our players have a great rapport with Josten, and this is will be a natural transition for him," Marlin said. "He'll be able to sit in any recruit's living room and be able to sell the fine points of our program and our University."
Crow's hiring will be subject to state board approval.
