RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) Eastern Kentucky has announced that Jeff Neubauer has resigned after 10 seasons to become Fordham's next men's basketball coach.

Neubauer was the Colonels' second-winningest coach with a 188-134 record including two Ohio Valley Conference tournament championships and NCAA Tournament appearances in 2007 and 2014. EKU also played in three other postseason tournaments during a tenure featuring five 20-win seasons, the most for any coach in program history.

EKU won 21 games last season with a 28-point road win over No. 18 Miami in December.

University President Michael Benson said in a release Monday that a search for Neubauer's successor will begin immediately.

Benson said of Neubauer, ''Our men's basketball program has enjoyed great success these past 10 years, and he leaves the program in a terrific position for his successor.''
