Sources: Paul Lusk out at Missouri State after seven seasons

Missouri State has parted ways with men's basketball coach Paul Lusk after seven seasons, sources told ESPN.

Lusk, 46, took over in 2011 when Cuonzo Martin left for Tennessee. Lusk took the program to a CIT appearance in 2014 but was unable to get the Bears to the NCAA tournament. Missouri State was picked to win the Missouri Valley this past season, but the Bears finished 18-15 overall and were 7-11 in league play.

Lusk joined Missouri State after spending six seasons as an assistant at Purdue.
