Flint's Drexel career comes to an end with a record of 245-217 and no NCAA Tournament appearances. The Dragons did, however, win the CAA regular season title in 2011-12 and have made multiple trips to the NITs, most recently in 2012.
In the four seasons since, they were just 46-76 and failed to finish above .500.
