Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Texas Southern announced the resignation of men's head basketball coach Tony Harvey on Tuesday.
According to the school, Harvey decided it was in his personal and professional interests to pursue other goals. The resignation is effective as of July 2, 2012.
Harvey has been at TSU basketball since 2008 and won the regular season SWAC Championship in 2011, played in the SWAC Tournament Championship twice and qualified to participate in the 2011 NIT.
Harvey compiled a 56-72 record in four seasons at TSU, and went 13-18 last season and reached the SWAC title game.
"We appreciate the hard work put in by Coach Harvey over the past several seasons and we wish him well in his future endeavors," TSU Director of Athletics Dr. Charles McClelland said. "It is our goal to maintain as much continuity as possible within the men�s basketball program as it relates to the student-athletes currently on the team and the coaching staff in place. Moving forward we will name an interim head coach who will serve in that capacity for the 2012-13 season. At the conclusion of the season we will conduct a national search to find a permanent replacement."
