CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Dave Loos is retiring from Austin Peay after 27 years coaching the Governors.

Austin Peay announced his decision on Thursday.

Loos, who also was athletic director for 16 years, is scheduled to hold a news conference on Monday. He notched his 500th career victory on Feb. 16 but missed four games in January while continuing chemotherapy for a cancerous lymph node.

The all-time wins leader at Austin Peay, Loos was the Ohio Valley Conference coach of the year five times while winning nine titles. He led the Governors to four OVC Tournament championships, the last in 2016 when they lost to Kansas in the NCAA Tournament.

The Govs went 11-19 this season, missing the OVC tournament.
