Vice Chancellor for Athletics, Recreation and Ritchie Center Operations Karlton Creech has announced that there will be a change in leadership for the University of Denver men’s basketball program after Rodney Billups‘ fifth season came to an end on Saturday.
“We are thankful for Rodney’s service and dedication to the program and its student-athletes,” Creech said. “We wish him and his family the best in his future endeavors.”
Billups finished his tenure 48-94 in five seasons at his alma mater, including 23-53 in Summit League play. Denver was 31-29 in Billups first two seasons, earning the third seed in his second season at the 2018 Summit League Championship. Denver beat No. 6 Oral Roberts in the Summit League Quarterfinal that season for Denver’s only postseason win in Billups’ time with the Crimson and Gold. DU finished ninth and failed to qualify for the Summit League Tournament in two of the last three seasons.
The University of Denver will conduct a national search for Billups’ replacement. There will be no media availability during the search.
