Lipscomb's Scott Sanderson resigns as men's basketball coach after 14 seasons

Scott Sanderson resigns as Lipscomb's men's basketball coach after 14 seasons.

The son of former Alabama coach Wimp Sanderson said in a statement released Tuesday by the university that "after much consideration, I believe it is time for me and the university to go in different directions."

Sanderson posted a 222-201 record at Lipscomb and guided the program during its transition from the NAIA ranks to the NCAA Division I level in 2001-02.

Before coming to Lipscomb in 1999, Sanderson went 84-25 in three seasons at the University of Mobile, giving him a career record of 306-226.

Lipscomb went 12-18 last season but did win both its regular-season games with Atlantic Sun rival Florida Gulf Coast, which went on to reach the NCAA South Regional semifinals.
