After four years guiding the Monmouth College men’s basketball program, Mark Vershaw has stepped down.

 

Monmouth athletic director Roger Haynes accepted Vershaw’s resignation in a Thursday morning meeting.

 

“We appreciate the four years of hard work and dedication Mark gave to the college,” said Haynes. “We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

 

A 2001 graduate of the University of Wisconsin and the leading scorer on the Badgers’ 2000 Final Four team, Vershaw came to Monmouth after an assistant coaching stint at Cornell University. He had also held assistant positions at Washington State University and Illinois Central College.

 

A national search for Vershaw’s successor will begin immediately.
