Rick Majerus remembered by members of the media

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Members of the media took to Twitter to remember former Utah and St. Louis head coach Rick Majerus, who passed away on Saturday night at the age of 64.

With the news of former Utah head coach Rick Majerus' death spreading quickly, many members of the college basketball media are taking to Twitter to remember him. Majerus was known for having a multitude of great stories, and was nearly universally liked by all.

Here is a sampling of what people are saying about Majerus.

Majerus was a head coach for 25 seasons at Marquette, Ball State, Utah, and Saint Louis, with the majority of his career being spent with the Utes. He also was an assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks for a season, and spent some time as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men's National Team.

The cause of death is unknown at this point, but Majerus had to step away from his job as head coach at Saint Louis this past summer to deal with heart issues, and it was announced several weeks ago that he would not be returning to the bench for the Billikens. Majerus was 64 years old.
