(Kansas City, Mo.) - Matt Brown, who has led the University of Missouri-Kansas City men's basketball program for the last six seasons, has been dismissed as head coach, Director of Athletics Tim Hall announced Tuesday.
"Matt ran our men's basketball program with dignity," Hall said. "He put student-athlete welfare and academics in the forefront. The coaches and student-athletes have represented UMKC and Kansas City in a first class manner under his watch, and I personally wish him nothing but the best."
Brown posted a 64-122 overall record in his career with the 'Roos, and finished the 2012-13 season with an 8-24 mark. The squad tied for seventh in the Summit League with a 5-11 record. Brown's best year came in 2010-11, when the squad posted a 16-14 overall record, finishing sixth in the league with a 9-9 clip.
"I would like to thank Tim Hall, former Chancellor Guy Bailey, and current Chancellor Leo Morton for the opportunity to coach at UMKC the last six years," Brown said. "I am extremely excited to see what God has in store next for me and my family."
There is one year remaining on Brown's contract.
