PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College Athletics Director Bob Driscoll announced today that men's basketball Head Coach Keno Davis will not return to coach the team. The College has begun a search for a new coach.
"I appreciate everything Keno Davis has done for our basketball program during the last three years," Driscoll said. "We are committed to finding a head coach that will guide our program and help develop our student-athletes in the classroom, in the community and on the court."
Davis was named the 14th head coach at Providence College in 2008 after one season as a head coach at Drake University where he had posted a 28-5 mark and was named National Coach of the Year by six organizations, including the Associated Press and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. In three seasons at Providence, Davis registered a 46-50 record and an 18-36 mark in BIG EAST action. Davis guided the Friars to a 19-14 record (10-8 BIG EAST, tied for 8th) and a berth in the NIT in 2008-09. In 2009-10, Providence registered a 12-19 record and placed 15th in the league after posting a 4-14 mark. This season, Davis' squad was 15-17 overall and 4-14 (14th) in BIG EAST action.
"Providence College has a great tradition in men's basketball," Driscoll stated. "I have very high standards and expectations for our student-athletes and our program. We will work very hard to find the right person for this job who has the leadership skills to meet those standards."
