Moser signs 5-year extension with Ramblers after Final Four run
The Loyola Ramblers have signed men’s basketball coach Porter Moser to a five-year extension after his team’s meteoric Final Four run in the NCAA Tournament.
In signing Moser to the new deal, school officials raved the university has found its “perfect fit.”
Moser guided the 11th seeded Ramblers to the school’s first Final Four appearance in more than five decades, prompting a number of other schools to express growing interest in the rising coach and Loyola to step up.
While neither side released specific details of the new deal, it ties Moser, a native of nearby Naperville, to the university through the 2025-26 season.
Athletic Director Steve Watson told the Chicago Sun-Times the new deal is “rewarding Moser for not just for the success of the last season but the success of building the program at Loyola.”
The Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) named Moser the Coach of the Year after he led Loyola to MVC regular-season and tournament titles.
Going into next season, eight of 15 Ramblers players return, and the team has three-star recruit Franklin Agunanne coming on board. Top returnees include Clayton Custer, Cameron Krutwig and Marques Townes.
