LOS ANGELES -- Mike Dunlap is out as Loyola Marymount basketball coach after a record of 81-108 in six seasons.
Athletic director Craig Pintens announced Sunday that the school and Dunlap "have agreed to part ways."
Dunlap, a 1980 graduate of the school on Los Angeles' westside, received a contract extension in August 2017 after leading the Lions to a better season than the one before in each of his first four years.
Last season, the Lions began 8-0 and earned a postseason berth for just the third time since 1990. They reached the semifinals of the College Basketball Invitational. They also won the title at the Jamaica Classic.
"Mike has created a tremendous foundation for us to build on, elevating our program in so many areas," Pintens said in a statement.
A national search for a new coach is underway.
