Portland State parts ways with head coach Tyler Geving


Portland State is in search of a new head coach, the university announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The program has parted ways with head coach Tyler Geving following eight seasons with the Vikings.

“I want to thank Coach Geving and his staff for their contributions to the development of our men’s basketball program, the department, and university throughout the years,” said Director of Athletics Valerie Cleary. “Coach Geving did outstanding work in recruiting great student-athletes and changing the culture of academic success amongst the team. These decisions are always difficult, and especially in this case due to the outstanding character of Coach Geving.”

Portland State endured its second consecutive losing season in 2016-17. Geving had a 112–133 (62–80 Big Sky) record. He began his tenure at Portland State in 2005 as an assistant coach. Geving took over for Ken Bone in 2009.
