LBSU Releases Reynolds After Making Tourney

March 20th, 2007

LONG BEACH, CA -- Long Beach State Director of Athletics Vic Cegles announced today that the contract of 49er men’s basketball coach Larry Reynolds will not be renewed. Reynolds is in the fifth and final year of his original five-year contract.

“We appreciate the hard work and leadership that Larry provided,” said Cegles. “However, I believe it is in the best interest of the university and the men’s basketball program to make a change. We had a banner season, but upon an extensive review I came to the conclusion that a foundation had not been built to ensure long term success.”

A national search for a successor will begin immediately.
