MALIBU, Calif. (AP) Marty Wilson won"t return as Pepperdine basketball coach next season.
The school said Tuesday that he will coach the Waves in their four remaining regular season games and the West Coast Conference tournament before his contract is terminated. Wilson has an 86-125 record in seven years at the helm.
The Waves are 4-22, including 1-13 in the WCC, going into Thursday"s home game against BYU.
Wilson says he knows the ultimate goal is to win and since the Waves didn"t consistently do that the responsibility lies with him.
Wilson, a 1989 Pepperdine graduate, is in his 21st year with the Waves as an athlete and coach. He was an assistant from 1991-96 and returned as associate head coach in 2008-09 before taking over as head coach before the 2011-12 season.
