KENNESAW, GA. (AP) - Kennesaw State University is not renewing the contracts of men’s basketball coach Tony Ingle or his staff.

Interim athletic director Scott Whitlock called Monday’s announcement “regrettable but necessary” to help turn around the team’s academic performance. Whitlock said the university has lost one NCAA scholarship for men’s basketball and faces more sanctions if the players don’t improve their grades.

Ingle took over the team in 2000 after coaching stints at Gordon College, the University of Alabama-Huntsville and Brigham Young University. He was a scout for the Utah Jazz in 1997. He did not immediately return a call for comment.

A search committee will be formed this week to find a new coach.
