Farmville, Va. -- Longwood University men's basketball head coach Mike Gillian resigned Wednesday, March 13, 2013, after 10 years with the Lancers.

“Mike has played an important role in the history of Longwood Athletics,” said Director of Athletics Troy Austin. “I want to thank him for his service to the university, the effort he invested in the men's basketball program and his active involvement with community initiatives. I wish the best to Mike and his family in their future endeavors.”

Gillian, who came to Longwood in 2003, was the longest-tenured head coach in the 37-year history of the Longwood men's basketball program. The team compiled an overall record of 93-214 during Gillian's tenure, which included six years in Division I. His best season was in 2008-09, when the Lancers finished 17-14, including wins against George Washington University of the Atlantic 10 Conference and James Madison University of the Colonial Athletic Association.

In 2012-13, their first season in the Big South Conference, the Lancers compiled an 8-25 overall record and a conference tally of 4-12. The team advanced to the Big South Tournament Quarterfinals with an 87-72 win against two-time defending Big South Champion UNC Asheville before falling to VMI, 90-86.

Austin said the university will soon begin a national search for a new head coach.
