SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle University basketball coach Joe Callero is leaving the school, after the program’s return to Division I competition, to take over at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in California.

Seattle athletics spokesman Jason Behenna told The Associated Press that Callero gave notice Thursday and was to be introduced at a Friday news conference in San Luis Obispo.

Last season, Callero coached the Redhawks to a 13-8 record in their return to Division I ball. The wins included victories against Louisiana Tech, Eastern Washington and Loyola Marymount. Callero had a record of 117-105 in eight years, with five winning seasons.

The Mustangs (7-21) parted with coach Kevin Bromley last month after finishing at the bottom of the Big West Conference.
