Bowling Green, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Bowling Green State parted ways with men's basketball coach Louis Orr on Tuesday, deciding not to renew his expired contract.

The Falcons went just 12-20 overall this season, including 6-12 in the Mid- American Conference. The Falcons lost in the first round of the MAC Tournament on Monday, falling to Northern Illinois 54-51 in overtime.

Orr joined Bowling Green prior to the start of the 2007-08 season and later signed a two-year contract extension that expired at the end of this season.

"We want to thank Coach Orr for his dedication to BGSU and his leadership in developing men of character in the Falcon basketball program," stated BGSU athletic director Christopher Kingston. "I want to personally thank Coach Orr for his professionalism and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."

Bowling Green posted an overall record of 101-121 in Orr's seven seasons as head coach, including a 54-60 mark in MAC play.

In his second season at Bowling Green, Orr led the Falcons to an overall record of 19-14 and won the MAC East Division, earning the top seed in the MAC Tournament. For his efforts, Orr was tabbed the MAC Coach of the Year that season.

Orr went on to lead the Falcons to records of 16-16, 13-19 and 12-20 over his final three seasons. Bowling Green twice made it to postseason play under Orr, competing in the National Invitation Tournament in 2009 and the CollegeInsider.com Tournament in 2012.
