South Alabama coach Ronnie Arrow retires

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Arrow will be replaced by his assistant coach Jeff Price.

In a sudden move, South Alabama Jaguars men's basketball head coach Ronnie Arrow will be stepping down from his position immediately, according to Jags Jungle.

Arrow was on his second stint with the Jaguars and has amassed 647 wins over his career at San Jaconto Community College, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and South Alabama. During his time as a head coach, Arrow has won three junior college national championships and guided the Jaguars to three Sun Belt titles and four NCAA Tournament appearances.

Replacing the Sun Belt's all time leader for wins won't be an easy task, but it will fall to Arrow's assistant, Jeff Price. Price has racked up 318 wins over his career at Lynn University, Georgia Southern and West Virginia Wesleyan.

Arrow leaves the Jaguars sitting at 5-5 on the season and 2-0 in conference play with wins over the Florida Atlantic Owls and Florida International Panthers to their credit this season. Price's first game as the head coach will be against the Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans on Saturday.
