FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Indiana Tech men's basketball head coach Al Grushkin will not return to the sidelines after the 2013-14 season, the school announced Monday.
Grushkin cited being closer to family in a statement.
"Resigning has been something I've been considering," Grushkin said. "My father passed away over a year ago, and since that time I've wanted to get back closer to my family."
In four seasons at Indiana Tech, Grushkin is 83-42. The Warriors have one game left this season.
Grushkin coached Indiana Tech to NAIA prominence. The Warriors reached a No. 7 ranking during the 2011-12 season.
"It's been a good four-year ride, and I'd like to thank President Snyder and the Indiana Tech family for the opportunity here. I wish everyone well," Grushkin added.
Indiana Tech has already begun its search for the next head coach.
