College Basketball: Davalos, Texas State part ways

Texas State head coach Doug Davalos went 92-107 in seven years with the program.

Texas State head coach Doug Davalos went 92-107 in seven years with the program (SMDR).

For the first time in a while, Texas State will look for a new head coach to lead its men’s basketball program.

After seven years as head coach, Doug Davalos and the Bobcats parted ways. Davalos’ contract ran out at the end of the season and it won’t be renewed.

“I am very appreciative of what Coach Davalos has done for the men’s basketball program.” Texas State Director of Athletics Dr. Larry Teis said in a statement.  “Davalos inherited a tough situation when he came to Texas State.  Recruiting three years in three different leagues is not easy. The decision to not renew his contract was mutual. I wish Doug the best whether he chooses to remain in coaching or enter athletic administration.”

Davalos went 92-107 with the Bobcats and never had a winning season. His best year was in 2010-11 when Texas State went 16-16.

A search for a replacement started immediately and will be conducted by the Bobcats and Parker Executive Search, the same firm that brought Dennis Franchione back to Texas State.
