BREAKING: Loos to Retire at Austin Peay

The man known as the “Dean of the Ohio Valley Conference” is calling it a career, leaving behind a 27-year legacy and a court that bears his name.

Austin Peay men’s basketball coach Dave Loos, who was on a one-year contract after last season’s improbable run to the OVC tournament title and NCAA tournament berth, is expected to announce his retirement at 11 a.m. Monday at a community event at Dunn Center, according to university sources.

Loos’ drive and dedication were never more evident than in his final year when he was undergoing chemotherapy during the season and dealing with the weakness, sores and weight loss while continuing to oversee a Governors squad that was adapting to a perimeter-based offensive scheme.
