BAKERSFIELD, Calif.- CSUB head men's basketball coach Keith Brown's contract will not be renewed following its expiration at the end of March, as announced by CSUB Athletic Director Jeff Konya Mar. 10.

"We thank Coach Brown for his 14 years of service to this program and community as both an assistant and head coach for the Roadrunners," Konya said. "At this time we feel it is in the best interest of CSUB to go another direction in order to continue our competitive progress as a Division I men's basketball program."

Brown spent six seasons as head coach of the Roadrunners while guiding the program through the NCAA Division I transition process. In four full Division I seasons Brown was 32-83. His overall record as head coach at CSUB was 68-105. He spent the eight previous seasons as an assistant coach under Henry Clark at CSUB.

An interim head coach will not be named, but a national search for Brown's replacement will begin immediately.
