GREAT FALLS, Mont. – The Anthony Owens era of Argo basketball has come to an end in a mutual parting between the former Argo player and the University of Providence athletic department. Owen’s tenure lasted four years, after taking over as head coach before the 2014-15 season.

“The University of Providence has decided a change in leadership for our Men’s Basketball Program is necessary,” Vice President for Athletics Dave Gantt said. “We would like to thank Coach Owens for his contributions over the past four years, and wish him the best in future endeavors.”

Over the four years with Owens as head coach, the Argos went 53-64 and finished sixth in the Frontier Conference in each of those seasons. The highlight of the Owens era was an upset of then number 1 ranked Cal State San Marcos on December 20, 2014.

The University of Providence will begin a national search for a new head men’s basketball coach immediately.
