Loyola Marymount parted ways with Max Good on Tuesday.

Former Charlotte Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap has emerged as the frontrunner to replace Good, according to sources.

Dunlap, 56, spent the 2012-13 season as the head coach of the Bobcats and was fired after a 21-61 record. He was previously an assistant coach at Arizona, Oregon and St. John's -- where he was the interim head coach for a season while Steve Lavin stepped away due to health issues.

Dunlap was also a successful head coach at Division II Metro State from 1997-2006.

Good, 72, took over for Bill Bayno in 2009 after Bayno resigned due to health reasons just months into his tenure. Good was elevated and led the Lions to an 18-15 mark in 2010.

However, the Lions have been ravaged by injuries the last few years. LMU finished 11-23 and 1-15 in the WCC a year ago and the Lions are 13-19 and 4-14 this season, but had two players on the league's all-freshman team.

Good was previously the head coach at Bryant University -- and also helped build a prep powerhouse at Maine Central Institute in the 1990s.
