Toreros Add Gerlufsen to Basketball Coaching Staff

Chris Gerlufsen will join the Torero men's basketball coaching staff beginning in the 2015-16 season.

Sam Scholl returns for his third year on Coach Lamont Smith's staff. He returned to his alma mater in April of 2015 after spending eight seasons on the Santa Clara coaching staff.

Scholl played two seasons at USD (1998-2000) and was a teammate of Lamont Smith's during the 1998-99 campaign. The Toreros' lone senior on the team's 20-9 squad from 1999-2000, USD would post a 38-18 two-year record during Scholl's playing career.

Scholl would go on to spend seven seasons on the USD coaching staff under former head coach Brad Holland, including helping the 2002-03 team win the 2003 WCC Basketball Championship and reach the 2003 NCAA Division I Tournament for the third time in program history.

"I'm also very excited to bring another fellow Torero back to San Diego," added Smith. "Sam Scholl and I have known each other for 17 years and his knowledge of USD and the WCC will be incredibly important to our team's success."

For eight seasons Scholl was on the Santa Clara University staff, and in September of 2013 was promoted to Associate Coach under head coach Kerry Keating. At SCU Scholl helped the Broncos to 26 wins in 2012-13 and 24 victories in 2010-11. The Broncos won the College Basketball Invitational post-season tournament in 2013 and the Tournament in 2011. Scholl and Lamont Smith worked together at Santa Clara for one season during the 2007-08 campaign.

A native of Gig Harbor, Wash., Scholl completed his undergraduate degree in Sociology at USD in 2001. Prior to arriving at USD he played two seasons at Tacoma Community College in Tacoma, Washington, and was the point guard on the 1996 2A Washington State championship team for Gig Harbor High School.

Sam and his wife, Heather, have three daughters - Riley, Reese and Regan.
