Fresno State men's basketball coach steps down


FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Fresno State coach Steve Cleveland is stepping down after six seasons to take a job in the athletic department.

Athletic director Thomas Boeh announced the move Thursday, just over a week after Cleveland finished his fourth straight losing season with a 14-17 record.

Cleveland had a 92-98 record in six seasons with the Bulldogs. He is credited with cleaning up a program that was saddled with NCAA sanctions and probation when he arrived. But he was unable to have similar success on the court as the Bulldogs qualified for just one NIT berth during his tenure.

Cleveland will take an administrative position in the athletic department for the final two years of his contract.
