Alcorn State declines to extend contracts to Luther Riley and Tonya Edwards

Alcorn State has made a big decision on the hardwood. The school declined to extend contracts to head men's basketball coach Luther Riley and head women's basketball coach Tonya Edwards. Both deals were set to expire at the end of March.

Riley took a leave of absence in January. He was the Braves head coach for four seasons, compiling a 38 - 91 record. Alcorn went 27-45 in SWAC play, including a 4-14 record this season.

Edwards was the Lady Braves head coach for seven seasons, compiling a 60-146 record. She led Alcorn to the SWAC Championship Game in 2012, falling to Prairie View. The Lady Braves were 10 and 18 overall this season, 9-9 in conference play.

Alcorn will conduct national searches for both positions.
