Seattle U's Callero taking job at Cal Poly

SEATTLE -- Seattle University men's basketball coach Joe
Callero is leaving the school, after the program's return to
Division I competition, to take over the reins at Cal Poly San Luis
Obispo in California.

Seattle University athletics spokesman Jason Behenna told the
Associated Press that Callero gave notice Thursday and was to be
introduced at a Friday news conference in San Luis Obispo.

Last season, Callero coached the Redhawks to a 13-8 record in
their return to Division I ball. The wins included victories
against Louisiana Tech, Eastern Washington and Loyola Marymount.
Callero had a record of 117-105 in eight years, with five winning
seasons.

The Mustangs parted company with coach Kevin Bromley last month
after finishing at the bottom of the Big West Conference at 7-21.
