Amherst, NY (WBEN) After 14 years on the job, Reggie Witherspoon is out as UB men's basketball coach.
UB Athletic Director Danny White issued a statement, saying "After much consideration, we have determined that a change in leadership for our men's basketball program is necessary," White said. "Coach Witherspoon has led this program with character and integrity for the past 14 years and we are grateful for his service to our institution. This was a very difficult decision because I understand the impact Coach Witherspoon has made to our University and community. To be sure, our program is in a much stronger position than when Reggie and his staff took over."
White says a national search will begin for Witherspoon's replacement.
