Jeff Bzdelik Resigns as Men's Basketball Coach
April 4, 2007
After two years at the helm of the Air Force men's basketball team, Jeff Bzdelik has resigned and accepted the head coaching position at the University of Colorado.
Bzdelik guided the Falcons to a 50-16 record (a 75.8 winning percentage) in his two years, including a school-record 26-9 mark this past season. Air Force was one of just 17 Division I teams to win at least 50 games the past two years. During those two seasons, Bzdelik led the Falcons to the 2005-06 NCAA Tournament and an NIT Final Four appearance this year.
The Falcons will lose six seniors from the '06-07 squad, including four starters. Junior Tim Anderson was the only non-senior to start this season, starting all 35 games. He is the top returning scorer, averaging 9.1 points per game this season. Sophomores Andrew Henke and Anwar Johnson appeared in 33 and 32 games, respectively, during the '06-07 campaign.
A search for a new head coach is underway.
