Clarksville, TN – An era of unprecedented success at Austin Peay came to a close this morning.
After 27 years on the sidelines, Dave Loos has called it a career as Austin Peay men’s basketball coach, bringing to an end a tenure marked by integrity, ingenuity and achievement.
“The takeaway for me today is how proud I am of the things we accomplished,” Loos said during Monday’s press conference. “The thing I’m celebrating is that we helped make a lot of young people better. We helped them better themselves in the classroom. The game-changer is a college degree, and that’s the thing we really emphasized—getting the diploma and growing as a person.”
But in a space of a couple of years he saw his long-time assistant coaches (Bret Campbell, Corey Gipson and Charles ‘Bubba’ Wells) leave the program for varied reasons and having those positions being replaced with young and upcoming coaches – until he added Jay Bowen to his staff for the second time.
