According to a press release from NKU Athletics Department, Dave Bezold will not return as the head coach of the men’s basketball team.

“This is difficult given Dave’s role in our university and our community,” Athletic Director Ken Bothof said in the press release. “Dave is a good man and has given much of himself to the development of the young men in our basketball program. I am grateful for his service and wish him and his family well.”

Bezold has led the team through its transition to Division I that began in 2012.

In his 11 seasons as head coach, Bezold amassed a 194-133 record.

According to the release a national search for a new coach will begin immediately.
