UNO to remain DI

University of New Orleans President Peter J. Fos announced that UNO’s athletic program will remain NCAA Division I, instead of transitioning to Division II. UNO is currently competing as a Division I independent. In April 2011, UNO received permission from the NCAA to begin the transition from Division I to Division II. In 2010, UNO withdrew from the Division I Sun Belt Conference with the intention of moving to NCAA Division III. This is great news for current head basketball coach Mark Slessinger – he will now remain a DI head coach!
