Jacksonville State and head coach James Green have mutually agreed to part ways, according to a release put out by the school this afternoon.

“We will begin a national search immediately for a replacement,” said JSU President Dr. John M. Beehler. “We will look for someone to lead our program who will have the Gamecocks competing for conference championships and advancing to the postseason on a regular basis. We continue to value student-success academically and as citizens in our community.”

Green went 89-153 in eight seasons with the Gamecocks. His best season came in 2012-13, when the team was banned from the postseason due to APR issues. This past season, he led the Gamecocks to an 8-23 finish.
