New Hampshire has parted ways with head coach Bill Herrion

After 18 season at New Hampshire, head men’s basketball coach Bill Herrion‘s contract is not going to be renewed. UNH made the announcement on Tuesday, following a 15-15 season in which the Wildcats finished 3rd in the America East standings.

“We wish Bill all the best and thank him for dedicating 18 seasons to UNH Men’s Basketball,” AD Allison Rich said in a statement. “However, after careful consideration, I have determined that it is time for new leadership to continue advancing the program.”

Herrion was hired in 2005 and went 227-303 overall during his time with the Wildcats and 133-163 in America east play. UNH is one of a shrinking number of D-I men’s basketball programs that has never been to the NCAA Tournament. Herrion did lead the team to the CIT twice, the program’s only two D-I postseason appearances ever.

Prior to UNH, Herrion was the head coach at both East Carolina and Drexel, leading the latter to three NCAA Tournaments and one NIT.
