Acadia men’s basketball head coach Stephen Baur has left the team to take a position with Canada’s women’s basketball team.
He had been with the Axemen for six years and led them to an Atlantic University Sport (AUS) championship and three AUS final appearances.
Athletics director Kevin Dickie said he had mixed emotions.
“His aspirations to be with our national program have been clear to me for some time to the extent that I was a reference for him," he said.
A search for a replacement will begin immediately.
