The Lions were all set to rebuild their program last year under first-year coach Bill Bayno, but the blueprint was scrapped five games into the season when Bayno had to take a leave of absence because of health issues. Bayno eventually resigned, assistant coach Max Good was elevated to the top job, and Loyola Marymount lost 28 games.
