St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Billikens men's basketball coach Rick Majerus has been granted permission to interview with another university to fill its coaching vacancy, Saint Louis University said Wednesday.

Majerus, who is still under contract with SLU for next season, will meet with the athletic department at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

Majerus, who came to Saint Louis University in 2007, helped guide the Billikens to an 2012 NCAA Tournament appearance.

Over a 23-year college coaching career, Majerus has a 479-189 record.  His career win total is good for 23rd among active coaches and his .717 winning percentage is 13th.  Most impressive is that he's had just one losing season as a head coach.

The Billikens are 93-67 under Rick Majerus.
