In one of the more surprising terminations thus far, Buffalo has decided to part ways with fourteenth year head coach Reggie Witherspoon after a 14-20 season. The Bulls season ended Thursday in a 70-68 MAC quarterfinals loss to Kent State.
Witherspoon took over for Tim Cohane five games into the 1999-2000 season. He had seven winning seasons at Buffalo, including a regular season MAC title in 2008-09.
He took the Bulls to the NIT and CBI once, and also to the CIT twice. He was 197-225 in his tenure at Buffalo.
Before coming to MAC school he was the head coach at Erie Community College. Witherspoon was also a Buffalo native.
