Four Division I men's programs are looking for new head coaches. Three of the teams -- Wisconsin, Navy and Columbia -- have won an NCAA Division I title or reached the title game.

-- Jeff Rohrman resigned at Wisconsin, where he was the head coach the past seven seasons.

Rohrman concluded his with a 61-63-12 overall record, including a 12-24-6 mark in Big Ten games. Rohrman's teams went 1-6-1 in Big Ten Tournament play, including a tie with 10th-ranked Michigan in the quarterfinals of the 2008 Big Ten Tournament. The Badgers missed a bid to the NCAA tournament for the 13th consecutive season since winning the 1995 Division I title.

-- Rich Miranda resigned as the Navy head coach after 18 years in Annapolis -- four as head coach.

The former William & Mary star has been associated with the Navy men's team for the last 18 seasons, serving as Greg Myers' assistant coach from 1991-2004, before taking over the reins as the head coach in 2005. He was named the 2005 Patriot League Coach of the Year after leading the Midshipmen to a 8-6-2 overall record and a 3-3-1 Patriot League record in his first year as Navy's head coach. He compiled a 24-34-9 record in four years at Navy.

-- Mike Tracy resigned after eight seasons as the head coach at Wright State.

Tracy, a 1994 WSU graduate, took over in the 2001 season as Hylton Dayes left to become the head coach at Cincinnati. He had a 12-7-1 record in his first year when he was named Ohio Division I Coach of the Year, but he didn't have a winning season after that. His overall record was 69-84-6.

-- Leo Chappel will not have his contract renewed after three years at Columbia.

Chappel compiled a record of 14-33-4 in three years, finishing with a mark of 2-17-2 in Ivy League play. The Lions didn't win a league game in his first two seasons. The biggest wins of his tenure came in 2008 when Lions beat Santa Barbara, where Chappel spent five years as an assistant coach, and defeated Penn, which went on to win the Ivy's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
