BUFFALO, NY - (UB Press Release) University at Buffalo Director of Athletics Danny White has announced today that Reggie Witherspoon will not be returning as head men’s basketball coach for the Bulls next season.

“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.”

The announcement came after the Kent State Golden Flashes beat the Bulls 70-68 in the third round of the Mid-American Conference tournament Thursday night.

White confirmed a national search will commence immediately .
