Joe Crisman returns to Loyola as director of basketball operations

Former Loyola guard Joe Crisman will return to Loyola this season on Porter Moser’s staff as the director of men’s basketball operations.

Crisman played for Loyola from 2011 to 2015 and averaged 5.1 points in 121 career games.

“I can’t thank Coach Moser enough for this opportunity and am thrilled to be back at Loyola, though it feels as if I never left,” Crisman said. “This university has meant so much to me and this is a great opportunity to give back to Loyola. It’s good to be home and I look forward to helping the program reach new heights.”

Crisman served as co-captain on Loyola’s CBI championship team during the 2014-15 season. He was known for his ability to make hustle plays.

“Joe is one of the best culture guys I have ever coached,” Moser said. “He was part of a team that won 24 games, which was the most for Loyola in 30 years. Joe epitomizes what you want to teach your student-athletes and to have him join our staff will be beneficial, especially for all of our new guys. He is part of the Loyola family and I am fired up to have him back.”

Loyola opens the 2016-17 season Nov. 11 against Alcorn State.
