KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The University of Missouri-Kansas City has decided to part ways with men’s basketball head coach Kareem Richardson.

Director of Athletics Brandon E. Martin, Ph.D., made the announcement Sunday.

“We have decided to move in a different direction with our men’s basketball program consistent with our overall goal of comprehensive excellence,” Martin said. “I am thankful for Coach Richardson’s service to the UMKC men’s basketball program for the past six seasons.”

Richardson was hired in March 2013 after serving as an assistant coach on Louisville’s national championship team that year. He had previously worked as an assistant coach at Drake, Evansville, Indiana State and Xavier, as well as a previous stint as an assistant at UMKC. He compiled an overall won-lost record of 75-118 as UMKC’s head coach.

“We will be expeditious but thorough in our search for the next leader of our men’s basketball program,” Martin said.
