St. John’s Red Storm men’s basketball coach Chris Mullin has resigned. He was their head coach for the past four seasons.

A national search has begun to find his replacement. There are reports that St. John’s would like to hire Arizona State men’s basketball coach Bobby Hurley.

“We thank Coach Mullin for all of his contributions to our men’s basketball program,” Director of Athletics Mike Cragg said. “St. John’s basketball progressed well during his tenure, culminating with a trip to the NCAA Tournament this past season. Coach Mullin has a deep passion for this program and he has been committed to helping our student-athletes achieve their goals on and off the court, so I know this was not an easy decision.

“We wish him and his family nothing but the best as he begins this new chapter of his life.”

The 55-year-old Brooklyn, New York native — who was a legend at St. John’s before entering the NBA in 1985 — was 59-73 in the four seasons. He also went 20-52 in the Big East Conference.

He had the best season of his coaching tenure in 2018-19, as he guided the team to a 21-13 record. The team also went 8-10 in conference play.

The Red Storm made it to the NCAA Division I First Four in Dayton, Ohio, before being eliminated by Hurley’s Sun Devils. Arizona State won 74-65 over St. John’s on March 20th.
