MACOMB, Ill. -- Western Illinois men's basketball coach Derek Thomas resigned Tuesday after five seasons and only 40 victories with the school.

Athletic director Tim Van Alstine said Thomas did not meet the school's expectations of a winning record. The Leathernecks went 12-18 this season and were 40-104 in five seasons under Thomas.
