Lusk Joins McDermott's Staff At Creighton

OMAHA, Neb.--Paul Lusk goes from being a Bear to a Bluejay.

The Creighton Bluejays announced Tuesday afternoon that the former Missouri State basketball coach will be an assistant for Greg McDermott.

Missouri State fired Lusk after seven seasons in early March and replaced him with Dana Ford. 

Lusk goes to Creighton and replaces Darian DeVries who was named the new head coach at Drake last week.

Lusk won 106 games in his seven seasons as the head coach for the Bears.

In a news release, Lusk said "coach McDermott's one of the best coaches in the country.  And I can't wait to join his staff and be a part of the Creighton Bluejay family."

Before Missouri State, Lusk was an assistant coach at Purdue.

Greg McDermott's Bluejays compete in the Big East and were 21-12 last year.

Creighton's been in the NCAA tournament five of the last seven seasons.
