Youngstown State men's basketball coach Jerry Slocum is retiring after 12 seasons, the school announced Tuesday.
"After 42 years of head coaching, I have been blessed and honored to have coached so many great young men and the privilege of working alongside some great assistant coaches," Slocum said in a statement. "At this time I'm announcing that I'm retiring from coaching and have loved every moment that I was called 'Coach.'"
Slocum, 65, was 129-211 entering this past season. The Penguins were 13-21 this past season and 5-13 in Horizon League play.
Slocum was previously the head coach for nine seasons at Division II Gannon in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he led the Golden Knights to a 179-78 mark and six consecutive NCAA tournament appearances.
