Coaching Carousel: Mike Jarvis To Step Down as Coach of Florida Atlantic

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

Long-time head coach Mike Jarvis will be out at Florida Atlantic at the close of the season.

According to multiple sources, Mike Jarvis will step down as the head coach of Florida Atlantic after six seasons when this year comes to an end.

Based on a report in the Sun Sentinel, the school was set to fire Jarvis but he opted to resign as the head coach instead.

During his six seasons, Jarvis compiled a record of 77-109 and was just 46-56 in conference play between the Sun Belt and Conference USA. The team won 20 games only one time under Jarvis, in 2011, and won the regular season Sun Belt title that year. The Owls lost in the conference tournament and went to the NIT where they lost in the first round to Miami.

He has one year remaining on a three-year contract extension he signed at the end of the 2012 season.

Jarvis has also been the head coach at Boston University, George Washington and St. John's, with a 422-312 record overall. He also served as a commentator on ESPN after being fired as the coach of the Red Storm. The 25-year head man will reportedly be retiring from coaching.
