LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -Bucknell men's basketball coach Pat Flannery announced his retirement after 14 years at his alma mater.
Flannery led Bucknell to two NCAA tournament victories, including a dramatic upset of Kansas in the 2005 tourney. The following season, the Bison became the first Patriot League team to be ranked in the AP Top 25.
Flannery's retirement will take effect July 1, when he will become a university fundraiser. He said he wants to spend more time with his family.
Flannery experienced some health problems this season, missing a few games with an illness the university declined to discuss. Flannery said Friday that he's healthy.
