On behalf of BGSU Athletics, Derek van der Merwe, director of athletics, issued the following statement regarding the termination of Michael Huger’s contract:
“We are extremely appreciative of Coach Michael Huger’s contributions and commitment to Men’s Basketball at Bowling Green State University over the last eight years. As a former student-athlete of the program, he has brought meaningful and extensive perspective to the head coaching position and has positively impacted the lives of student-athletes. We are deeply grateful for Michael’s service to his alma mater.
BGSU Men’s Basketball has received significant financial support from its donors over the years and competes in one of the best facilities in the Mid-American Conference – the Stroh Center. It is well poised to be a leading basketball program nationally. BGSU will launch a national search immediately to place our next head coach for Men’s Basketball.
We wish Coach Huger the very best in the next chapter of his career.”
Huger went 126-125 (.502) during his eight seasons at his alma mater.
