Kevin Vande Streek retires as Calvin basketball coach

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- After 23 years leading the Calvin men's basketball program, Kevin Vande Streek is retiring.

Vande Streek had a career record of 435-208 (.677).  which makes him the school's winningest coach.  He also led the Knights to the 2000 national championship.

“It is certainly with deep and mixed emotions that I move from what has been my life’s work, but this is a decision that I feel is right,” said Vande Streek in a statement released by the college. “God has blessed me in my time as coach, has helped me through this process, and will continue to guide my life. I will cherish the relationships that I have been able to build with players, coaches and so many others in my time as a coach.”

Vande Streek led Calvin to nine regular-season MIAA titles, nine MIAA tournament titles and 10 NCAA Tournaments.
