Athletic director Derrick Gragg says a search for a new head coach will begin immediately.

Gragg says that "after thorough and extensive review," he decided it was "in the best interests of the Eastern Michigan University men's basketball program to change direction."

Ramsey will be paid $176,416, the balance of the remaining one year on his contract.
