UE Men’s Basketball parts ways with Lickliter
Posted: Thursday, May 5, 2022
Kenneth “Ziggy” Siegfried, EdD, director of athletics at the University of Evansville (UE), has announced the departure of head men’s basketball coach Todd Lickliter, effective immediately.
“I have had the opportunity to meet with Coach Lickliter and it is obvious that he is an outstanding individual who cares greatly for this University and our student-athletes,” said Siegfried. “Todd and his staff have exemplified the true meaning and purpose of a Purple Ace. We wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
Lickliter assumed the head coaching position on January 21, 2020 and directed the program through the COVID-19 pandemic. The highlight of his tenure came during the 2020-21 season when he orchestrated a 7-game Missouri Valley Conference turnaround while leading the Aces to a top five finish in the league standings.
A national search for Lickliter’s replacement will begin immediately.
