Truman State coach to step down

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- The men's basketball coach at Truman State is stepping down.  

Jack Schrader had coached at Truman State since 1995. The university said Wednesday that a search is under way for his replacement. A news release did not disclose Schrader's plans.  

Schrader was 165-274 in 16 seasons, 85-203 in Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics conference games. The Bulldogs were 7-19 overall and 5-17 in the MIAA this season.  

In 1999, he led the Bulldogs to the program's first trip to the NCAA Division II Final Four, losing to eventual champion Metro State of Colorado in the semifinals. Truman State also qualified for the NCAA tournament in 2005-06, losing in the first round to the University of Central Missouri. 

Schrader is a two-time MIAA coach of the year.
