Mark Titus is a man who wears many hats: former walk-on phenomenon, author, college basketball writer and podcaster, and much more.
He’s ready to add college basketball head coach to that list.
On Tuesday afternoon, Titus took to Twitter to announce his candidacy for the vacant head coaching job at Chicago State.
ANNOUNCEMENT: I am officially throwing my hat into the ring for the vacant Chicago State men's basketball head coaching position. More details to come on today's episode of @oneshiningpod, which will be recorded shortly. Thank you for your time. #MakeChicagoStateAgain— Mark Titus (@clubtrillion) May 1, 2018
It’s not the first time that Titus has made a run at an open head coaching position. Last summer, he openly campaigned for the Duquesne job. Ultimately, the job was given to Keith Dambrot, but the feeling of rejection has clearly not swayed Titus from putting his name in the mix once again.
Will this come to fruition? Only time will tell. There is one thing we can count on though, and it’s that Titus will continue to produce content for Bill Simmons’ “The Ringer” (which is a site that covers sports and pop culture, the only such site of its kind) even if he is given the job.
It's not going anywhere. I'll just use it as the recruiting/propaganda machine it was always destined to become. https://t.co/eskiXKMqvV— Mark Titus (@clubtrillion) May 1, 2018
Chicago State is a tough job. Some might even say it’s the toughest in all of college basketball. Is Mark Titus the one to turn the program around? There’s only one way to find out.
