Bobby Braswell, the basketball coach at Cal State Northridge since 1996, is out as coach. The school announced that it would not renew his contract.

Brandon Martin, the school's new athletic director, said in a statement Tuesday afternoon, "I want to thank Coach Braswell for his 17 years of service and contributions to our men's basketball program and the university community at large. I wish Coach Braswell and his family all the best moving forward."

Braswell, a Northridge graduate, had been the coach for 17 seasons. He had a 251-258 overall record. The Matadors were 14-17 this past year.

In a tweet from his Twitter account, Braswell said, "Extremely blessed by God for the opportunity He gave me over the past 17 years to touch the lives of so many great young men. Truly blessed."

Martin, a former USC basketball player, will conduct a national search for a replacement.
