College of Charleston head coach Bobby Cremins announced his retirement today after 31 seasons of coaching. Cremins spent time as the head coach of Appalachian State and Georgia Tech before taking over the Cougars in 2006.
Cremins announced on January 27th that he would miss the remainder of this season due to exhaustion. The Cougars went 7-4 without Cremins on the sideline.
Cremins made eleven trips to the NCAA Tournament in his career, ten of which came with Georgia Tech, including three Sweet Sixteen appearances and one Elite Eight trip. The Yellow Jackets named their home court after Cremins in 2003.
College of Charleston athletics director Joe Hull says the school will conduct a national search for its next head basketball coach. The Cougars finished this season with a 19-12 record, snapping a streak of three consecutive seasons with at least twenty wins.
