Williams out after 19 years as UC Santa Barbara hoops coach

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) Bob Williams is on his way out after 19 years as basketball coach at UC Santa Barbara.

Athletic director John McCutcheon said Thursday in a statement that Williams won't be retained beyond his current contract.

Williams is the winningest coach in school history with 313 victories and the longest tenured Division I coach west of the Mississippi River, but the Gauchos were 6-22 this season. Williams, the late Jerry Tarkanian at UNLV and Bob Thomason at Pacific are the only coaches in Big West Conference history to reach 300 wins.
