Georgia Southern Men's Basketball declines to renew Burg's contract
Brian Burg
Georgia Southern University Director of Athletics Jared Benko announced today that head men's basketball coach Brian Burg's contract will not be renewed.

"I would like to thank Brian BurgĀ for his contributions to our men's basketball program over the past three seasons," said Director of Athletics Jared Benko. "No one wanted to bring a Sun Belt title home to Georgia Southern more than him, and we greatly appreciate his commitment towards accomplishing that goal with our student-athletes, coaches and staff."

Chris Shumate will serve as the interim head coach for the program for the Eagles, who concluded their season last week.

The athletics department will not comment further on the search for the next head coach until the process is complete.
