School officials on Sunday announced a national coaching search would begin immediately.
A statement on the move by BGSU Director of Athletics Derek van der Merwe said: "We are extremely appreciative of Coach Michael Huger's contributions and . . .
Huber was a standout player for the Falcons from 1989-1993 and twice earned All-MAC honors. He is sixth all-time on BGSU's 3-point field goal percentage list.
After finding success as a professional player in Europe, he began began coaching at the collegiate level. He held assistant positions at Longwood and George Mason before joining former Falcons head coach Jim Larranega at the University of Miami (Fla). After four years with the Hurricanes (2011-2015), Huger landed Bowling Green's head coaching position.
The Brookly, NY native spent eight seasons at the Falcons helm, compiling a 126-125 record overall (64-82 in MAC play). The best season were 2018-19 and 2019-2020. Bowling Green went 12-6 in MAC competition both years and won 42 games overall in the two campaigns.
This year's Falcon team compiled an 11-20 mark overall. A lopsided 92-58 loss at Ohio in the regular season finale kept BGSU from reaching the eight -- and final -- spot in this year's MAC tournament.
