Mullin: Trying to turn around St John's an 'obligation'

NEW YORK (AP) Chris Mullin's old coach reached way back into history to describe the buzz from St. John's hiring its all-time leading scorer.

"I'm not going to say that Mull got a lot of ink," Lou Carnesecca crowed from the podium in the arena bearing his name, "but President Eisenhower after winning World War II didn't get that much space in the paper."

Mullin and his new bosses couldn't help but keep bringing up the past Wednesday as the Red Storm's new coach was introduced to several hundred adoring fans. The 51-year-old Mullin has never coached before, but he and St. John's are banking on the lessons he learned from Carnesecca and the many other basketball greats he played for and with during a Hall of Fame career.
