 SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) -- Doug Davalos won't return as men's basketball coach at Texas State.

   In a statement Monday, athletic director Larry Teis said the Bobcats men's basketball coach for the past six seasons won't have his contract renewed for a seventh.

   In six seasons Davalos compiled a 92-107 record at Texas State, the third-most wins in school history.

   His best season was 2011-12, when the Bobcats were 16-16 and finished as Southland Conference West Division co-champions before moving to the Western Athletic Conference.

   However, Davalos encouraged players to complete their studies, graduating 16 players. He earned the 2012 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Literacy Award recipient for his work in the San Marcos community in conjunction with the Reading with the Cats program.

   A nationwide search will begin for a successor.
