Friday, January 27, 2012
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- College of Charleston coach Bobby Cremins is taking an indefinite leave of absence for a medical condition.
The school announced Friday that assistant coach Mark Byington will take over the team.
The school did not specify what was wrong with Cremins or how long he may be off the bench.
Cremins is in his sixth season with the Cougars after spending 19 years coaching Georgia Tech. The 64-year-old coach has led Charleston to 20 victories in each of his seasons, but his teams haven't been able to win the Southern Conference tournament to get to the NCAAs.
The Cougars started this season 10-2 with wins over Clemson and Tennessee, but have lost six of their last eight.
Cremins is 579-375 in 31 seasons of coaching.
