Florida Atlantic coach Mike Jarvis to resign at end of season
BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Florida Atlantic's Mike Jarvis will resign at the end of the season, his 25th as a head coach and his sixth with the Owls.
In a statement Friday, the 68-year-old Jarvis said he wants to pursue other basketball opportunities. He had one year left on his contract.
The school issued a news release saying Jarvis would retire, then sent a revised announcement 20 minutes later saying he would instead resign.
Florida Atlantic lost at Tulane on Wednesday to fall to 10-19 overall and 5-9 in Conference USA with two games left in the regular season.
Jarvis has a record of 77-109 with FAU. He took Boston University, George Washington and St. John's to the NCAA tournament, but the Owls had losing records in five of his six seasons.
