DENVER (AP) — The University of Denver is parting ways with basketball coach Rodney Billups after five seasons.
Billups finished 48-94 at the school where he once was a standout player. The Pioneers were 2-19 overall this season and 1-13 in Summit League play. Denver didn’t qualify for the conference tournament in two of the last three seasons.
“We are thankful for Rodney’s service and dedication to the program and its student-athletes,” vice chancellor for athletics Karlton Creech said in a statement Monday. “We wish him and his family the best in his future endeavors.”
The Pioneers will conduct a national search to replace Billups, who is the younger brother of longtime NBA player and current Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Chauncey Billups.
