Athletic director Charlie Cobb said Monday that the school will not renew his contract.

Capel is in the final year of a four-year deal that expires at the end of March. The former North Carolina player — whose brother Jeff is on Duke’s staff — was the youngest coach in Division I when he was hired in 2010.

The Mountaineers went 9-21 this season, were 5-11 in their final season in the Southern Conference and were eliminated in their league tournament opener by Samford. They went 53-70 in four seasons under Capel.
