VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - The University of South Dakota has launched a national search for a new head men’s basketball coach.

The school is not retaining Joey James, who held the position on an interim basis this past season. He took over for Dave Boots, who retired last September after 25 years. Boots was the winningest coach in program history.

James played for the Coyotes from 1997-99 and spent 10 seasons as an assistant coach before assuming the interim head coach job. School officials said at the time that a national search for a full-time successor would begin after the season.

USD lost to Denver in the Summit League Tournament quarterfinals on Sunday, and finished the season 12-18.
