"We are very grateful to Jim Boone and his staff for the dedication they have given to Eastern Michigan University and to the men's basketball student-athletes over the past five years," Diles said. "This was a difficult decision to make, but we felt that a change needed to be made to move the program forward on a positive note."

No successor has been announced.
