PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) - Danny Evans will not return as Arkansas-Pine Bluff's women's basketball coach.
Athletic director Skip Perkins announced Evans' departure Thursday. Evans went 42-78 in five years at UAPB.
"After completing a review of our women's basketball program we feel it is necessary to move in a new direction going into next season," Perkins said. "We are extremely grateful for the contributions of coach Evans and we wish him well as he moves to a new chapter in his professional life."
Assistant Carey Shelton will become interim coach.
The school said Evans' contract will not be renewed after it ends July 1.
