UNO's Williams resigns to 'pursue other career interests'
NEW ORLEANS -- University of New Orleans head basketball coach Buzz Williams resigned Friday, departing after only one season.
UNO Athletic Director Jim Miller said Williams wanted to "pursue other career interests" and was not more specific.
Later, Williams told WWL-TV off camera that he intended to take an assistant coaching job at Marquette.
Williams went 14-17 (9-9 Sun Belt Conference) this past season and the Privateers reached the Sun Belt Conference Tournament quarterfinals.
