DOVER, Del. – Delaware State University has made a decision to move its men’s basketball program in a new direction, according to Candy Young, DSU Director of Athletics.

Greg Jackson is being released from his head coaching duties effective immediately.

Assistant coach Keith Walker will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

During his 14-year DSU coaching career, Jackson posted an overall record of 200-216. His tenure included three Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular season titles (2005-2007), as well as the school’s first-ever MEAC Tournament Championship and NCAA Tournament berth in 2005.

A national search will begin immediately for a permanent head coach for the men’s basketball team.
