Kennesaw State men’s basketball coach Al Skinner will be stepping down at the end of the season, the university announced Thursday. Skinner is in his fourth season with the Owls, who are 5-23 overall, with a 2-11 mark in the ASUN Conference, tied for last with Stetson in the nine-team league. “We certainly appreciate the time coach Skinner has spent at Kennesaw State,” athletic director Milton Overton said in a release. “He has invested in the lives of countless student-athletes over the years and we wish him the best in the future.” The university said a national search will begin immediately to find Skinner’s replacement. The 66-year-old Skinner was hired in April 2015 by then-athletic director Vaughn Williams. The two had worked together for six years at Boston College. At the time, Skinner was taking over a Kennesaw State team that had gone 10-22 during the 2014-15 season. Skinner was never able to approach those levels of success at Kennesaw State. Since he arrived on campus, the team has an overall record of 40-81, including a 22-33 mark in the ASUN, 1-3 in the ASUN tournament and 29-25 at the KSU Convocation Center.  – John Bednarowski, tribuneledgernews – Read More
