Wittenberg University men's basketball coach Bill Brown announced he is stepping down after twenty-three seasons as the Tigers' head coach. Upon making his decision Brown stated, "Needless to say, it has been a great honor and great privilege to have been the head coach of one of the most well respected college basketball programs in the country." "There are many, many people to thank for their contributions made on my behalf during my time being involved with the university and the basketball program. This list includes university and athletic department administrators and their support staffs, all those who served as members of our coaching staff, faithful Tiger basketball fans, Witt alums and, of course, all the many fine young men I had the absolute great fortune and great pleasure to have been around and coached. It has been a fun ride and we sincerely thank all of you that helped make it so." Teams that played under Brown's direction at Wittenberg compiled an overall record of 483-167 for a .743 winning percentage. Brown was also interim head coach at Wooster College for one year and head coach at Kenyon College for five years. Including victories at those two institutions Brown coached teams won a total of 543 games. Along with his twenty-nine years as a head college basketball coach Brown also served ten years as an assistant coach at the college level including at Miami of Ohio (one year), Muskingum (four years), Wooster (one year) and Ohio University (four years) and three years at Upper Arlington (Ohio) High School. Matt Croci, assistant director of athletics and associate head coach of men's basketball, has agreed to serve as interim head coach during this transitional time. Brown is the latest long-time head coach to step down this summer. Page Moir left Roanoke after 27 seasons and Bert West retired from East Texas Baptist after 22 seasons. Joe Cassidy shifted from Rowan's head coach to associate head coach after 20 seasons at the helm of the Profs' men's program. Kathy Connell retired after 20 seasons coaching the Pomona-Pitzer women.
