Another day, another college basketball head coach fired from his position. The latest casualty in the college basketball? Milwaukee head coach Rob Jeter.
Jeter spent the last 11 seasons with the Panthers and had a pretty successful career with the team, taking them to two NCAA Tournament appearances. He also helped them win two Horizon League tournament championships and two regular season season championships.
Milwaukee athletic director Amanda Braun announced the news of Jeter’s firing on Thursday. She said that the search for a new coach will begin immediately and they want one with “a proven record of continued success.”
During his career with the Panthers, Rob Jeter racked up a record of 185-170. He he led the team to an appearance in the NIT in 2011 and the CBI in 2012.
After missing the NCAA Tournament the last two years, it is no surprise that Jeter was let go. There is no doubting that he will be back in the coaching scene sooner rather than later.
