Campbell says coach Robbie Laing won't return after 8th losing season in 10 years

Campbell says Robbie Laing is out as men's basketball coach.

The school said Monday that Laing would not return next season as the Camels' coach.

The 55-year-old Laing was 114-185 in 10 seasons in Buies Creek and helped guide the Camels' move from the Atlantic Sun to the Big South.

Campbell went 13-20 this season and finished tied for third in the league's North Division with a 7-9 conference record. The Camels lost four of five to end the season, their eighth losing season under him.

Athletic director Bob Roller says Laing "helped transform Campbell basketball" into a competitive program.

Laing's best season was in 2009-10 when the Camels went 19-11 and shared the A-Sun regular-season championship.

The school says its search for a new coach will begin immediately.
