Winthrop has parted ways with Randy Peele.
Peele took over five years ago after Gregg Marshall left for Wichita State. He was 77-82 in his tenure.
“We are certainly very appreciative of the hard work and dedication shown by Coach Peele on behalf of this university over the past nine years, first as an assistant and then as head coach of our men's basketball program,” Winthrop athletic director Tom Hickman said.
The Eagles were 25-39 in the last two seasons and 12-20 this year. It was Winthrop's first 20-loss campaign since 1997-98.
