St. John's men's basketball program will reportedly continue its head coaching search, as the program has been turned down by a target.

Zach Braziller is reporting that Loyola-Chicago head coach Porter Moser has decided to stay put.

Moser, 50, had reportedly been offered the St. John's job earlier in the week.

"Porter Moser is staying at Loyola-Chicago, per sources. St. John’s coaching search continues," he reports.

ESPN's NBA insider, Adrian Wojnarowski, has confirmed the news. "Loyola-Chicago coach Porter Moser has turned down a St. John's offer, sources tell ESPN. Moser will remain with the Ramblers," he added.

Moser has been Loyola-Chicago's head coach since 2011. He led the program to a shocking Final Four appearance in 2018.

It's unclear where St. John's will go from here.
