In a game of musical chairs, Simon Tobin left CSU Bakersfield for San Jose State after Gary St. Clair retired, and Richie Grant left Memphis to replace Tobin in Bakersfield. George Kuntz moved across Orange County from UC Irvine to Big West rival Cal State Fullerton after Bob Ammann's contract was not renewed. Following Eric Visser's resignation at San Francisco, Eddie Soto took charge of the Dons.
