SC State’s official statement on Murray Garvin

Last night, we published Murray Garvin’s tweet where he announced that his contract was not being renewed by South Carolina State. Here is SC State’s official statement on the non-renewal:

South Carolina State University will not renew the contract of Bulldog’s men’s basketball head coach Murray Garvin, athletics director Stacy Danley announced on Monday (March 15th). 
Garvin spent 11 seasons on the Bulldog’s staff, the last 9 as head coach, and compiled an overall record of 88-166 as head coach with a 50-75 mark in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play. His best season was his third as head coach in 2015-16 where his team posted a 19-15 overall record and 12-4 mark in league play, finishing 2nd in regular season conference standings. 

“We appreciate the years of service Coach Garvin gave to Bulldog basketball,” said Danley. “The dedication to his student-athletes was admirable. I wish Coach Garvin all the best in his future endeavors.”
SC State will conduct a nationwide search immediately for a new head coach.
