Eric Reveno let go by Portland

|

Eric Reveno has been let go as head coach of the Portland Pilots, according to multiple sources.

Reveno had been with the program for 10 years, but had little to show for it. The Pilots made the CIT four times, not once making the NCAA Tournament, and Reveno was just 140-177 (60-96 WCC) after arriving at Portland following 10 years as an assistant at Stanford under both Mike Montgomery and Trent Johnson.

And now, Portland will be tasked with finding its 20th coach in school history. The Pilots have only twice ever been in the NCAA Tournament, in 1959 and 1996, and have never made a deep run. Much of that can be attributed to being a midmajor program in a midmajor conference like the WCC, where schools like Gonzaga and St. Mary’s have ruled the roost for years, but the onus is on the coach to put together a winning product and Reveno just couldn’t answer the bell in that department.

However, Reveno appears to be remaining optimistic based on the following posts from his Twitter.

Hey, @jongordon, can you point me to that story again how losing your job was the best thing that happened to you? Asking for a friend.

Reason I coach, and will coach again, is to help players be the best they can be and build championship teams. Its personal, it's the best.
