March 20, 2001

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Kevin Lehman, with only two winning seasons in six years, will not return as basketball coach at Nebraska-Omaha of Division II.

The Mavericks were 9-17 this season, including 3-15 in the North Central Conference. Lehman was 72-91 in six years.

Athletic director Bob Danenhauer said he respected Lehman’s work and commitment.

``However, the men’s basketball program has not made significant progress toward being a championship contender in the North Central Conference,″ Danenhauer said. ``It’s time for a change in order for UNO to step up to the next level.″

Lehman will remain an instructor in health and physical education, Danenhauer said.

The school will begin a national search for a coach.
