Portland State University announced Wednesday that Head Basketball Tyler Geving will not return for the 2017-18 season. Geving, the Vikings’ Head Coach for the past eight seasons, had two years remaining on his current contract.
“I want to thank Coach Geving and his staff for their contributions to the development of our men’s basketball program, the department, and university throughout the years,” said Director of Athletics Valerie Cleary. “Coach Geving did outstanding work in recruiting great student-athletes and changing the culture of academic success amongst the team. These decisions are always difficult, and especially in this case due to the outstanding character of Coach Geving.”
Geving will leave Portland State after 12 years on the Park Blocks. He was an assistant coach from 2005-09 under Head Coach Ken Bone. The Vikings had their two finest seasons in program history while Geving was the Associate Head Coach in 2007-08 and 2008-09. PSU won the Big Sky Conference each season and played in the NCAA Tournament, compiling matching 23-10 records.
