Troy Senior Vice Chancellor for Athletics Jeremy McClain announced Monday a change in leadership in the men’s basketball program as head coach Phil Cunningham has been relieved of his duties following his sixth season at Troy.

“I want to thank Phil Cunningham and his staff for their dedication to Troy University,” McClain said. “They have always represented us the right way and cared deeply for our student-athletes. However, at this point I feel it is necessary for us to provide new leadership for the program moving forward. We will begin immediately in the search for our next head coach.”

Cunningham took over the Troy program in 2013 and guided the Trojans an 80-111 record in his six seasons at the helm of the program.
