Jeff Bzdelik will not return as the head coach at Wake Forest next season, according to multiple reports.

He informed the team in a meeting at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, per a report from Blogger So Dear.

Bzdelik’s tenure in Winston-Salem was marked by mediocrity. He was 51-76 in four seasons, never winning more than six games in ACC play and failing to come close to having the kind of success that the program had under his predecessor, Dino Gaudio.

In recent seasons, there has been a massive pushback by Demon Deacon fans to force Bzdelik out of office.

Bzdelik was 17-16 this season, which was his best year with the program. Wake Forest went 6-12 in ACC play and actually landed wins over Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State.
