BREAKING: Dave Wojcik resigns as San Jose State head coach

After four seasons, Wojcik is stepping down.

NCAA Basketball: San Jose State at Wyoming Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

San Jose State head coach Dave Wojcik has resigned, the school announced on Monday.

According to the school’s official release, Wojcik submitted his resignation for “personal reasons.” This from Wojcik in the statement:

This past year has been emotionally challenging for me with the loss of my father. His passing made me evaluate what is important in life and the value of family. With the considerable needs of my widowed mother as well as my son moving to the East Coast after his high school graduation, I believe it is the appropriate time to resign my position as head men’s basketball coach at San José University.

The opportunity to lead the men’s basketball team has been a privilege. I am proud to leave the program positioned for continued success and wish the program and San José State University all the best.

Wojcik led the Spartans to a 32-90 record through four seasons, though the team did improve from a 2-28 record in 2015 to finish 14-16 this past season.

San Jose State will have to quickly find a new head coach at a fairly difficult time for the program. Assistant coach Rodney Tention will fill in as interim coach as the athletic department begins what it calls a “national search” to find Wojcik’s replacement.
