  •  

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Miami of Ohio coach Charlie Coles says he is retiring after 16 seasons at the school.

Coles announced his decision after the RedHawks lost 60-53 at Toledo on Monday night in the first round of the Mid-American Conference tournament. Miami went 9-21 and 5-11 in the MAC this season.

Coles finishes with a 263-224 record at Miami for the most wins in school history. He also spent six seasons at Central Michigan and has an overall record of 355-308.

Athletic director Brad Bates called Coles "an iconic figure in the history of Miami University as a student, athlete, server, leader, mentor and coach."

The RedHawks reached the postseason seven times during Cole's tenure, including making it to the final 16 of the NCAA tournament in 1999.
