Bethel athletic director Bob Bjorklund recently announced that Jeff Westlund will not be returning as the head coach of the Royals men's basketball program.
Westlund's Royals went 15-11 this past season, led by D3hoops.com All-America selection Taylor Hall. He won his 100th career game and his 100th game at Bethel this past season. Westlund, a 1983 alumnus of Bethel, was 103-80 in seven years at Bethel and is 108-119 overall.
Bethel was eliminated in the first round of the MIAC tournament, falling 48-43 at Carleton.
A thorough search process for the next head men's basketball coach will begin immediately.
