Tennessee State coach Larry Joe Inman resigns

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee State women's basketball coach Larry Joe Inman has resigned.

Inman, who has led three different schools to the NCAA tournament, said Thursday in a university release he is stepping down "for personal reasons."

"I've had a very positive experience here and I will always cherish the memories and relationships that I've had the opportunity to develop," he said.

Tennessee State went 65-80 during Inman's five seasons, including a 10-16 mark this year. Inman led the 2014-15 Tennessee State team to its first NCAA tournament berth in 20 years.

Inman owns an overall record of 545-397 at Middle Tennessee State (1978-86), Eastern Kentucky (1988-2008) and Tennessee State. He's an eight-time Ohio Valley Conference coach of the year with seven NCAA tournament appearances.
