Loyola University Chicago head men’s basketball coach Porter Moser announced that London Dokubo has been promoted to director of men’s basketball operations. Dokubo spent the 2018-19 season as Loyola’s video coordinator and has served on the Ramblers’ staff for four years.
“London is one of two guys who have been here since day one and he has absolutely earned every opportunity that has come his way,” Moser said. “As a former Rambler, a two-time Loyola graduate and after spending time on staff as both a graduate assistant and as video coordinator here, I am excited to move London up and give him this opportunity. He’s been an extremely valuable member of our coaching staff and knows our culture inside and out. He has unbelievable work ethic, loyalty and understanding of how things work at Loyola.”
Serving as the program’s video coordinator in 2018-19, Dokubo helped the Ramblers to a second straight Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championship as Loyola produced the MVC Player of the Year (Marques Townes) for the second consecutive year.
Prior to his appointment as video coordinator, Dokubo served as a graduate assistant for two seasons and played a role in the program’s most successful campaign in 55 years. During the 2017-18 season, Loyola won a school-record 32 games, captured the Missouri Valley Conference regular season and tournament championships and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the first time since 1963, when it took home the national championship. Loyola concluded the 2017-18 season ranked No. 7 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
As a player at Loyola from 2011-15, Dokubo was a defensive stalwart and key reserve who appeared in 102 games in his career, helping the Ramblers to a 24-win season and a College Basketball Invitational (CBI) title in 2014-15 in the program’s first postseason appearance since 1985.
Loyola returns three starters from last season’s 20-win squad, including First Team All-MVC center Cameron Krutwig.
