CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Dave Leitao has resigned as Virginia's men's basketball coach after the team's worst season in decades.

Athletic director Craig Littlepage made the announcement in a release from the school on Monday.

Virginia finished 10-18 this season, 11th in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It was the Cavaliers' worst record since they went 9-17 in 1967-68.

Leitao won the ACC coach of the year award in 2007, when Virginia shared first place in the conference with North Carolina, but compiled a 63-60 record in his four years.
