Robbie Laing out as Campbell's coach
BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Campbell says Robbie Laing is out as men's basketball coach.
The school said Monday that Laing would not return next season as the Camels' coach.
The 55-year-old Laing was 114-185 in 10 seasons in Buies Creek and helped guide the Camels' move from the Atlantic Sun to the Big South.
Campbell went 13-20 this season and finished tied for third in the league's North Division with a 7-9 conference record. The Camels lost four of five to end the season, their eighth losing season under him.
Athletic director Bob Roller says Laing "helped transform Campbell basketball" into a competitive program.
Laing's best season was in 2009-10 when the Camels went 19-11 and shared the A-Sun regular-season championship.
The school says its search for a new coach will begin immediately.
