Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Texas Southern announced the resignation of
men's head basketball coach Tony Harvey on Tuesday.
According to the school, Harvey decided it was in his personal and
professional interests to pursue other goals. The resignation is effective as
of July 2, 2012.
Harvey has been at TSU basketball since 2008 and won the regular season SWAC
Championship in 2011, played in the SWAC Tournament Championship twice and
qualified to participate in the 2011 NIT.
Harvey compiled a 56-72 record in four seasons at TSU, and went 13-18 last
season and reached the SWAC title game.
"We appreciate the hard work put in by Coach Harvey over the past several
seasons and we wish him well in his future endeavors," TSU Director of
Athletics Dr. Charles McClelland said. "It is our goal to maintain as much
continuity as possible within the mens basketball program as it relates to
the student-athletes currently on the team and the coaching staff in place.
Moving forward we will name an interim head coach who will serve in that
capacity for the 2012-13 season. At the conclusion of the season we will
conduct a national search to find a permanent replacement."
