McCullum back in coaching at San Francisco
Former USF basketball coach Robert McCullum is back in the college game, accepting an offer to join Eddie Sutton's staff at the University of San Francisco for the remainder of this season.
San Francisco's sports information department confirmed Friday that McCullum, who coached at USF for four seasons before he was fired last spring, would be on the bench for Sutton's USF debut Friday night against Weber State. McCullum has worked as coach of Nigeria's national basketball team but otherwise had been out of coaching since leaving the Bulls.
Sutton, a 71-year-old coaching legend who has 798 career wins, is stepping in as an interim coach, replacing Jessie Evans, who stepped down this week to take a leave of absence. McCullum was a finalist for San Francisco's head coaching job in 1995 when he was an assistant at Florida.
