GSU Eagles Fire Young
Tuesday, 12 March 2013

STATESBORO, GA - Georgia Southern University will make a change in leadership of its men’s basketball program, Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein announced today.

Head Coach Charlton Young (CY) who played for the Eagles from 1989-93,was 43-84 in four seasons at Georgia Southern, including a 26-46 mark in SoCon games. A Georgia Southern alum and member of the school’s Athletics Hall of Fame, Young took over a program facing a two-year probation period by the NCAA in 2009. After posting a 1-17 league mark in the 2010-11 season, Young engineered the second-best turnaround in SoCon history in 2011-12 as the Eagles went 12-6 and tied for second in the South.

“Charlton Young represents Georgia Southern with the utmost character. He has done a tremendous job with taking a program that had some trouble when he arrived and getting it to a level of respectability,” said Kleinlein. “At the same time, I felt where we needed to go is beyond where we are at right now and that a change in leadership is necessary.”

A national search for a replacement will begin immediately.
