South Dakota parts ways with head coach Todd Lee after four seasons

South Dakota announced Thursday the firing of head men’s basketball coach Todd Lee after four seasons at the helm. Lee is a USD alum and was 66-52 overall as head coach.

“We greatly appreciate Coach Lee’s dedication to the men’s basketball program over the past four years,” AD David Herbster said in a release. “We have decided to move the program in a different direction and will be initiating a search for a new head men’s basketball coach immediately. I am grateful to Todd for his leadership through unprecedented times and wish him all the best personally and professionally in his future endeavors.”

Lee was named Summit League Coach of the Year last year after leading the Coyotes to a 2nd-place finish with an 11-4 record. He was hired in 2018 after five seasons as an assistant at Grand Canyon. He also spent eight years as the head coach at Kentucky Wesleyan, going to five D-II NCAA Tournaments.
