Bowling Green will not renew contract of head coach Louis Orr
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Bowling Green State will not renew the contract of men's basketball head coach Louis Orr, director of athletics D. Christopher Kingston announced on Tuesday.
"We want to thank Coach Orr for his dedication to BGSU and his leadership in developing men of character in the Falcon basketball program," Kingston said. "I want to personally thank Coach Orr for his professionalism and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."
Bowling Green posted an overall record of 101-121 in Orr's seven seasons as head coach, including a 54-60 mark in Mid-American Conference play.
After posting a 13-17 overall record in his first season at Bowling Green in 2007-08, Orr led the Falcons to an overall record of 19-14 in 2008-09 in which BGSU won the MAC East Division and was the top seed in the MAC tournament. For his efforts, Orr was tabbed the MAC coach of the year that season.
Orr went on to lead the Falcons to records of 16-16, 13-19 and 12-20 in his final three seasons. Bowling Green twice made it to postseason play under Orr, competing in the NIT in 2009 and the CollegeInsider.com Tournament in 2012.
A national search for the 16th head coach in Bowling Green history will begin immediately.
