Derek Taylor, who has been on Haarlow’s staff as an assistant, will coach the team for the remainder of the season.
The personable Haarlow has been a staple of the Berry men’s basketball program since the 1990s — first as a player, then as an assistant coach and, since 2002, as head coach.
Haarlow posted a 137-181 record at Berry, including a 4-15 mark this season.
The resignation from Haarlow’s basketball coaching duties is effective immediately, according to a press release issued Tuesday by the school.
Taylor will serve as the interim head coach through the end of the current 2012-13 season.
Haarlow will stay on staff at Berry with teaching and other administrative duties through the end of the academic year, according to the release.
The Vikings, who are 1-7 in the Southern Athletic Association, have five conference games and the SAA tournament remaining.
Harlow graduated from Berry in 1996, and was a two-sport star for the Vikings.
In addition to playing basketball, he also played golf and was a 1996 NAIA All-American.
In his first season as head coach at Berry, he led the team to 21 wins and was named the TranSouth Athletic Conference’s Co-Coach of the Year.
