BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Bowling Green State University has announced it will not renew the contract of seven-year men's basketball coach Louis Orr.

Athletic director D. Christopher Kingston announced the firing on Tuesday.

Orr was 101-121 in seven seasons, including a record of 54-60 in Mid-American Conference play. The Falcons lost at Northern Illinois 54-51 in overtime on Monday night to close out a 12-20 season.

After going 13-17 in his first season in 2007-08, he led the Falcons to a 19-14 mark the next year and was voted the MAC's coach of the year. His last three years, the team went 16-16, 13-19 and 12-20.

His teams never made the NCAA field, but did play in the NIT in 2009 and the CIT in 2012.
