EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - SIUE announced that the contract for Jon Harris will not be renewed. Harris was only the second men's basketball head coach in its NCAA Division I era.
Harris became the Cougars eighth head coach in program history in April 2015. During his four seasons, the Cougars were 31-88 (.261) overall and 15-53 (.221) in the Ohio Valley Conference.
Hewitt said SIUE will be naming a successor as efficiently as possible.
"Our hiring goal will be to identify an individual who relates well to our student-athletes," said Hewitt. "We will look for extensive Division I experience under high-quality mentors. We expect to hire an individual who has led a program and demonstrated the strategic skills necessary to compete for championships."
