Providence College Athletic Director Bob Driscoll announced today (March 15) that men's basketball Head Coach Tim Welsh will not return to coach the Friars in 2008-09. Driscoll met with Welsh today to discuss the situation.
"I appreciate all the hard work and dedication that Tim has put into this program over the last 10 years," Driscoll said. "He represented the College with dignity and class. However, I felt that it was in the best interest of the program and Providence College to make a change in leadership."
