SAN JOSE -- San Jose State women's basketball coach Tim La Kose resigned on Friday for personal reasons, the school announced.
"We appreciate Tim's contributions to the program the last two seasons and wish him well in his future endeavors," athletic director Gene Bleymaier said in a statement.
La Kose went 22-38 in two years at San Jose State and was the Western Athletic Conference coach of the year in his first season. The Spartans won 11 games that season after combining for just 13 wins in the previous four seasons. They posted an identical 11-19 record this past season.
Bleymaier will immediately begin a search for a replacement as SJSU readies for its debut season in the Mountain West Conference.
La Kose's resignation comes just shy of two months before the Spartans open their season Oct. 29 against William Jessup. Practice for the season is set to begin in about three weeks.
Assistant coaches Mandi Carver, Brannon Hays and Cecilia Russell-Nava are expected to remain with the team, the athletic department confirmed.
La Kose came to SJSU after 10 seasons at Cal State Bakersfield, where the Roadrunners went 211-89. He also went 136-67 in eight seasons at California Lutheran University.
