UT-Pan American shockingly parts ways with Ryan Marks

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

UT-Pan American has parted ways with Ryan Marks.

Marks led the program to 16 victories this season and his team also had a GPA of more than 3.0, but sources told CBSSports.com that Marks' contract was not renewed.

Marks took over the program three years ago and won just six games his first two seasons, but the program made significant progress this year, going 16-16 and 5-3 in Great West play -- second in the league.

It was just the fourth time in the past 22 years that the program has finished at the .500 mark. However, the athletic director did not hire Marks and has opted to go in a different direction as the program heads into the WAC next season.
