Georgia Southern has decided to move on from fourth year coach Charlton Young.

Georgia Southern has fired fourth year head coach Charlton Young. Young just finished his fourth year with the Eagles and had a 43-84 mark in Statesboro.

This year the team went 14-19 after a promising 15-15 year last year and a second place finish in the South Division of the Southern Conference. The Eagles did knock off Wofford in the first year of the Southern Conference tournament, but lost to Davidson in the second round.

The Eagles also took down ACC member Virginia Tech this season, on the road.

Young was formerly an assistant at Auburn, Jacksonville, Northeastern, Chattanooga, and Georgia Tech. He was one of Division I's youngest head coaches, taking over the program when he was 37.

Georgia Southern has not been to the NCAA tournament since 1992.
