Milwaukee Panthers fire head coach Rob Jeter
- Updated: March 17, 2016
Rob Jeter is officially out as the head coach of the Milwaukee Panthers, Director of Athletics Amanda Braun announced on Thursday.
The Panthers went 20-13 during the 2015-16 season, including a fifth-place finish in the Horizon League.
Here is the official announcement from MKEPanthers.com:
“Rob has always put the interests of our student-athletes first and has represented our program and the university with class over the last 11 years. I thank him and his staff for their contributions,” Braun said. “After a thorough review, I have decided that a change in leadership of our men’s basketball program is needed to help us achieve our goal of consistently being a top program in the Horizon League.”
Jeter compiled a 185-170 overall record in eleven seasons at the helm. The Panthers finished third or higher in the Horizon League regular season standings twice in the last ten seasons and have not accomplished the feat since 2011-12.
“As we begin the process of searching for a new head coach, we will identify candidates who believe in our mission, possess high character and integrity and have a proven track record of continued success,” Braun said.
A national search will begin immediately for Milwaukee’s next head men’s basketball coach.
