BOCA RATON, Fla. (February 28, 2014) – Florida Atlantic University Head Men’s Basketball Coach Mike Jarvis will resign at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to pursue other basketball opportunities.
Jarvis, who is in his sixth season with the Owls, has coached collegiate basketball for 25 seasons.
“This decision is based upon my desire to explore other opportunities and in recognition that we are jointly disappointed that the men’s basketball program has not progressed as much as we would have liked,” said Jarvis. “I thank FAU for the opportunity to coach the fine student-athletes of FAU for the past six years.”
The Owls have two home games left for the season at the FAU Arena, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus – one against Conference USA-opponent Southern Miss on Sunday, March 2 at 2 p.m., and the other versus in-state rival and Conference foe FIU on Thursday, March 6 at 7 p.m.
FAU then will travel to El Paso, Texas from Tuesday, March 11 through Saturday, March 15, where the team will compete in its first C-USA Tournament.
