More news in what has thus far not been a banner off-season for the men’s basketball program.

The mass exodus from the Northwestern men’s basketball program continued Monday night, as it was first reported by Mountain West Wire’s Sean Paul that assistant coach Emanuel Dildy was expected to join Porter Moser’s staff at Oklahoma. The news was confirmed later that night by Bob Pryzbylo of Sooner Scoop, the Oklahoma Rivals site.

Dildy joined the Northwestern coaching staff in May of 2018 with a reputation for player development that he forged in prior stops at Valparaiso and Loyola Chicago, where he was previously an assistant coach on Moser’s staff from 2013-2016. The Chicago native and Eastern Illinois grad first broke into the coaching ranks in 2008 as an assistant at Kennedy-King College in Chicago and has progressively ascended to higher positions throughout his coaching career.

This news comes after the announcements that both Anthony Gaines and Miller Kopp have entered the transfer portal, and following a 9-15 season that included a brutal 13-game losing streak in conference play, one can only wonder what lies ahead for the program.
