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 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.
