Mercer head coach out at end of year

Mercer head coach Mark Slonaker will not be brought back next season as the men's basketball head coach. Mercer Athletic Director Bobby Pope announced the news on Tuesday.

Slonaker will coach the Bears in the final two games of the regular season and in the Atlantic Sun tournament.

Slonaker was at the helm for 11 years. I hate to see Slonaker go. He's a true gentleman in the game and a great advocate of Georgia basketball.
