OKLAHOMA CITY -

After seven years as the head women's basketball coach at Oklahoma City University, Rob Edmisson is leaving the Stars to take the head coaching job at Missouri Western State University.

OCU made the announcement Friday and says it will immediately begin its search for a new head coach. Claire Coggins will hold the position of interim coach for the time being.

"We wish Rob Edmisson the best of luck in his new endeavor," Oklahoma City University athletic director Jim Abbott said. "We respect his desire to seek out a position where he could be closer to his family. We will conduct a national search to find the next women's basketball coach at Oklahoma City University."

Edmisson lead the Stars to five Sooner Athletic Conference regular-season championships, five conference tournament titles, seven NAIA Division I tournaments and on March 21, the 2012 national championship.

"I'll be forever grateful about the opportunity to coach there at Oklahoma City University and be a part of the success there," Edmisson said. "The relationships professionally and personally I created at OCU will forever be in my heart and my family's hearts as we move on. It's a bittersweet moment because of the joy we had while we were there."

Edmisson's record at OCU was 212-31 and he has compiled a record of 514-150 in his 22 years of coaching on all levels.

This season Edmisson and the Stars maintained the No. 1 ranking through much of the season. OCU made its 15th consecutive NAIA Division I Tournament appearance.

Before OCU, Edmisson spent three years as an assistant at Oklahoma State.
