Bowling Green head coach Louis Orr will not return in 2014-2015


After seven seasons as the Bowling Green men’s basketball coach, Louis Orr will not return to the program when the 2014-2015 campaign opens.

In a statement issued by the University, their athletic director D. Christopher Kingston had this to say on the move:

“We want to thank Coach Orr for his dedication to BGSU and his leadership in developing men of character in the Falcon basketball program. I want to personally thank Coach Orr for his professionalism and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”

Orr is probably best remembered for his six-year tenure as the head coach at Seton Hall, but after being fired from that stop following the 2o05-2006 season, he landed safely with Bowling Green, as has been there ever since. There is nothing spectacular on his resume with the school (101-121 record, no NCAA Tournament appearances), but Orr is a well-respected member of the coaching fraternity, and it would be a surprise if he didn’t land on his feet with another job quickly.

Bowling Green isn’t exactly at the top of the list of “hot” openings in college basketball, but they are in the market for a new voice.
