Chadron State College Interim Athletic Director Ted Tewahade announced Tuesday that men's basketball head coach Shane Paben will not have his contract renewed.

"Coach Paben has brought success to the men's basketball program at Chadron State College," Tewahade said. "We thank him for time and dedication to Chadron State College."

Chadron State finished the 2023-24 season with a 12-17 overall record and a 9-13 mark in conference play. In four years, Paben had a combined record of 46-52 and was 36-39 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference action.

The Eagles qualified for the RMAC Tournament in three of the four years under Paben.

Prior to CSC, Paben was the head men's basketball coach at Bellevue University for 11 years. For his career, he owns a record of 321-152.

Tewahade said a national search for a men's basketball coach will begin soon.

"CSC has outstanding student-athletes, a top-notch facility, and a supportive fan base," Tewahade said. "I am excited to see what the future for CSC men's basketball holds."
