Saint Louis University basketball coach Rick Majerus, who led the Billikens to a 95-69 record over five seasons, died today of heart failure in Los Angeles. He was 64.

Majerus had stepped down as head coach in late August, citing health problems.

Back in 2007, when Majerus was still new in town, Riverfront Times staff writer Keegan Hamilton profiled the larger-than-life coach, who even then was making an indelible mark on the team and the town.
