Creighton mens basketball head coach Greg McDermott can breathe a little easier knowing his son will be by his side when the Bluejays transition to the new-look Big East next season. McDermott went to Twitter to announce his intentions of coming back next season rather than entering the NBA Draft. I will be returning to Creighton for my senior year and can't wait to put on that uniform for one more season! Doug McDermott (@dougmcd3) April 25, 2013 This is where my hearts at, Doug McDermott said at a press conference. The NBA can wait. I feel like I can play there some day, but I feel like this is too good an opportunity to pass up. The All-American junior forward is coming off a season in which he torched the nets for 23.2 points per game to go along with 7.7 rebounds. In three seasons at Creighton, the 6-foot-8 hybrid forward has poured in 2,216 career points. The Bluejays swept the Missouri Valley regular-season and tournament titles in their last year in the conference with McDermott taking home Player of the Year honors. Greg McDermott has publicly stated that he had no interest in coaching again in a major conference, but obviously those thoughts must be cast aside as Creighton embarks on their new journey next season. Having his son in the starting rotation is certainly going to help the program make the transition.
