UTPB Men's Basketball Coach steps down

The UTPB Men's Basketball Coach Andy Newman has announced his resignation, according to a press release from the University on Wednesday morning.

Newman has accepted a head coaching position at California State University – San Bernardino. 

He leaves the Falcons after five seasons. 

The last two were the most successful in school history. In 2016-2017 UTPB won the Lone Star Conference Championship and made the first trip to the NCAA tournament in program history.

This past season the Falcons advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. 

"This is the hardest decision I've had to make in my professional career. The people at UTPB are really special," said Andy Newman in a press release.
