DENVER — A 38-year tradition at Regis University will end when men’s basketball coach Lonnie Porter retires at the end of the 2014-2015 season.

Porter announced his plans Friday, setting an end to a tenure unsurpassed in length by any college men’s basketball coach in Colorado history. With a career record of 533-482, the five-time conference coach of the year has amassed more victories than any men’s coach in state history. His win total ranks 10th among all active NCAA Division II men’s coaches and 31st all time.

Porter was hired at Regis after five years as an assistant coach for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Prior to that, he coached at Adams State College and Denver’s Manual High School.
