Edinburg, TX (Sports Network) – The University of Texas-Pan American
announced on Tuesday that head men’s basketball coach Robert Davenport’s
contract will not be renewed for next season.

Davenport put together a 19-40 record in two seasons at the helm.

“We appreciate all that coach Davenport has done for the University and men’s
basketball program during his time here, and we wish him the best of luck in
his future endeavors,” said director of athletics Scott Street. “We feel that
due to the lack of competitiveness of our men’s basketball program that it was
necessary to make a change in leadership at this time.”

The school also announced that the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics
will put together a search committee of on-campus and off-campus
representatives to bring in a new head coach.
