Rick Majerus Website
Frequently Asked Questions
Since this is not an official site, what is your connection with Rick?
Really I have no connection with Coach Majerus.
However, I am an alumnus of Utah (Meteorology, '82), and as Rick,
Jeff Jonas and former Asst. Coach Brunkhorst did, I went to Marquette High
in Milwaukee. I've been a big fan of Rick Majerus since I first heard
of him as the hoops guru of Neeskara, a playground across the street
from my grade school. He was working at Marquette, also, of course.
Despite that, I've only briefly met him.
So...don't blame him, the Utah or St. Louis Univ. Athletic Dept, or ESPN
for anything on this site.
Did Rick wear the same sweater at every Utah basketball game?
Rick had a supply of those white sweaters as part of the
Reebok contract. According to former Asst Coach Donny Daniels, Rick recently
has been keeping the
same wardrobe for every game: plaid shirt, white Reebok Utah logo sweater,
black slacks and cowboy boots. When he does wear the same sweater
for consecutive games it is washed between games; don't worry, moms!!
How can I contact Rick about participating in a basketball camp or speaking at an event?
If you would like to schedule an appearance by Rick Majerus, you may start by contacting Lammi Sports Management in Milwaukee or email Lammi Sports.
What is the Majerus family ethnic background?
A visitor to the site from Luxembourg
told me that an Italian basketball magazine (yes, the Utes are a
global phenomenon) reported that Majerus was Luxembourgish.
This is confirmed in Rick's book.
How much does Rick Majerus weigh?
What is Rick's vertical leap?
I don't know, but you can get an idea by viewing this
of him leaping after a famous Keith Van Horn buzzer-beater.
Thanks to the
Runnin' Utes Basketball Scrapbook
for archiving that.
