Loyola men’s basketball head coach Porter Moser has hired two new coaches to complete his staff.

Loyola Athletics announced Thursday morning via Twitter that Patrick Wallace would be brought on as the video coordinator. Another tweet followed Friday morning announcing Jermaine Kimbrough would be Moser’s new assistant coach.

These two additions came after coaching spots opened when Bryan Mullins and Jevon Mamon left the program. Mullins was the associate head coach for the Ramblers while Mamon served as the director of basketball operations. After the season, Mullins accepted an offer to become the head coach at Southern Illinois University. Mamon joined him as an assistant coach.

Earlier in the offseason, London Dokubo was promoted from video coordinator to director of basketball operations to replace Mamon.

As a player, Kimbrough suited up for Virginia Tech University for two seasons. After his collegiate-playing career, Kimbrough got into coaching and bounced around several different schools. He served as an assistant coach at Cleveland State University for nine seasons and spent one season as an assistant coach at University of Nevada before heading to the University of Wyoming.

Kimbrough was an assistant coach at Wyoming for three seasons and helped lead the Cowboys to a pair of 20-win seasons and a berth in the College Basketball Invitational Championship.

“I am thrilled to add someone with Jermaine’s experience to our staff,” Moser said in a statement released Friday. “I have known Jermaine for a long time and really respect the job he has done at every stop along his journey. He is a tireless recruiter and has a tremendous enthusiasm about the profession. Jermaine has recruited and trained players that have reached the highest level and I have been so impressed with his all-around abilities as a coach.”

Wallace played basketball at North Carolina State University and Charleston Southern University from 2013-17. He made the NCAA Tournament twice with the Wolfpack. Following his playing career, he has served as a graduate manager at Northwestern University for the past two seasons.

“Patrick did a great job for Coach [Chris] Collins’ staff at Northwestern,” Moser said in a statement Thursday. “He is a high-energy individual and what sticks out is his passion for the game of basketball. I’m excited to welcome him to our staff.”
