After one season as an assistant at Missouri, Ernie Nestor has resigned, Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com is reporting.
He recently had an interview with Navy and, according to CapitalGazette.com, has been hired as an assistant with the Midshipmen.
Nestor took his first coaching job at the collegiate level in 1976, when he became the head coach at James Madison. He then went on to coach Wake Forest in two separate stints, as well as California, George Mason, South Carolina, Elon, and most recently Missouri.
“Ernie has 42 years of coaching experience and is someone I have a great deal of respect for,” Missouri coach Frank Haith said at the time of Nestor’s hiring. “He just has a tremendous understanding of the game and has a great ability to teach it as well.”
The Tigers finished 30-5 last season, including 14-4 in the Big 12. They were upset in the Round of 64 of the NCAA tournament by Norfolk State.
Navy ended this past season with an overall record of 3-26, including 0-14 in the Patriot League.
