STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAW) - UW-Stevens Point announced Wednesday that they’ll be moving on from mens basketball head coach Bob Semling. Bob Semling has been the head coach of the Pointers since 2005. Athletic Director Brad Duckworth told NewsChannel 7 that he made the decision to part ways with Semling.

”The decision was made with careful considerations to the program, Bob, the student athletes and the department. It was a continuous process,” Duckworth said.

The Pointers have had a great amount of success under Semling, winning two national championships, six WIAC regular season titles and six WIAC Tournament championships. However, this season, the Pointers missed the WIAC Tournament for the first time since its inception.

Semling also won two national ‘Coach of the year’ honors in his tenure.

The university said they’ll begin a national search for the program’s next leader shortly.
