Lochner won't return next season

PHILADELPHIA -- La Salle University says coach Tom Lochner won't return next season.

The school said Tuesday's announcement came after "a mutual agreement" between Lochner and athletic director Tom Brennan.

The Explorers (7-22, 2-12 Atlantic 10) finished the season with a 62-46 loss to Dayton on Saturday. Lochner was 71-102 in six seasons as head coach, finishing with a winning record only once -- 19-11 in 2006-07.

A national search for a replacement is taking place.
