STATESBORO, Ga. -- Georgia Southern men's basketball coach Jeff Price has quit after the Eagles went 8-22 this season.

Price had a record of 165-133 during his 10 years at Georgia Southern. He announced his resignation Monday.

The Eagles reached the NIT tournament in 2006, their first postseason appearance since 1992, and had three 20-win seasons during Price's tenure.

"I felt like at this time it was best for all parties involved to move on in my career," he said in a statement.

Athletic director Sam Baker accepted Price's resignation and said the search for a new coach will begin immediately.
