2014 College Basketball Coaching Carousel Tracker

Kevin C. Cox

Try and keep up as we try and keep up with all of the coaching changes in the NCAA.

March Madness is in full swing, but for some teams the season is already over. That means college basketball's coaching carousel has begun. With 351 D-1 basketball teams in the NCAA, there's bound to some shuffling every offseason, and this one is no different.

To help you keep track of who is coming and going, we're putting all of the hirings and firings in one place. This will be updated throughout the offseason.

2013-14 COACH SCHOOL 2014-15 COACH
James Dickey
Resigned
Houston
Kelvin Sampson
The school announced that Dickey, who had a 64-62 record for the Cougars, would step down to attend to private family matters. CBSSports.com reported on April 2 that former Oklahoma and Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson would take over the job. Sampson spent the last six seasons as an assistant in the NBA, most recently with the Rockets, after being chased from his previous collegiate coaching jobs due to NCAA violations.
Mike Montgomery
Retired
California
Cuonzo Martin
Montgomery finally called it a career after spending the better part of three decades coaching in the Bay Area. After looking at several different options, the Golden Bears settled on Cuonzo Martin from Tennessee. Martin took Tennessee to the Sweet Sixteen this season, his third with the school. He inherited the program after Bruce Pearl was fired and some fans felt he had underachieved. The lack of fan support could have led to his departure.
Buzz Williams
took Virginia Tech job
Marquette
Steve Wojciechowski
The Golden Eagles were 139-65 under Williams, who took over when former Marquette coach Tom Crean left the school for the tradition bigger recruiting potential at Indiana. Marquette went 17-15 this past season and missed the NCAA Tournament. Wojciechowski comes to Marquette after a long tenure under Mike Krzyzewski at Duke. Woj played at Duke and started as an assistant in 1999 before becoming an associate head coach in 2008.
Lewis Preston
Fired
Kennesaw State
Jimmy Lallathin
Preston took a "leave of absence" mid-season while Kennesaw State was 3-12, with only one of those wins against a D-I opponent. The program apparently had enough of Preston, who was 9-67 in less than three years with the school. Former Preston assistant Jimmy Lallathin had the interim coaching tag removed March 20 after coaching the final 16 games of the year.
James Johnson
Fired
Virginia Tech
Buzz Williams
Johnson was hired to keep everything together following Seth Greenberg's firing in 2012, but nothing went to plan as the Hokies went just 22-41 in his two seasons. Johnson is still very young and should have no trouble getting hired as an assistant coach elsewhere. The Hokies hired Buzz Williams away from Marquette, where he went 139-65 but missed the NCAA Tournament this past season. Many around college basketball viewed the move as a homerun hire for the Hokies.
Steve Donahue
Fired
Boston College
Jim Christian
Donahue lasted four seasons and compiled a 54-76 record before being fired after the Eagles went 8-24 this past season. Boston College replaces Donahue with Jim Christian, who spent the last two years with the Ohio Bobcats, where he compiled a 49-22 record.
Jim Christian
took Boston College job
Ohio
Saul Phillips
Christian did a fine job leading the Bobcats, but the draw of the ACC and Boston College was just too much for him to pass up after two years at Ohio. Phillips now arrives in Ohio after seven impressive seasons at North Dakota State, taking the Bison to two NCAA Tournaments, including a run to the third round in 2014.
Jeff Bzdelik
Resigned
Wake Forest
Danny Manning
Bzdelik had completely lost the fan base, and once the fan base goes, the athletic department tends to make a change. Bzdelik went 51-76 in four seasons at Wake Forest, including a 17-51 mark against ACC foes. The Demon Deacons have replaced him with Tulsa's Danny Manning. Manning led the Golden Hurricanes to the NCAA Tournament in just his second year on the job.
Saul Phillips
took Ohio job
North Dakota State
David Richman
NCAA Tournament success for mid- and low-major programs can often lead to schools losing their coaches to bigger and better programs. That, unfortunately, happened to the Bison after reaching the third round of this year's big dance. Saul Phillips is headed to Ohio, and his former assistant, David Richman, takes over.
Danny Manning
took Wake Forest job
Tulsa
Frank Haith
Manning did a commendable job turning things around in just two years, and despite Tulsa's athletic department seriously upping its ante to keep him in town, the lure of Wake Forest and the ACC was just too much to overcome. Instead, Tulsa went out and grabbed Frank Haith from Missouri, whose introduction was uh...less than ideal.
Todd Howard
Fired
IUPUI
Jason Gardner
Howard had a short stint at IUPUI, lasting three seasons. The Jaguars went 6-26 in both of their last two seasons, finishing at the bottom of the Summit League each year. IUPUI picked a local product to replace him. Former Indiana Mr. Basketball Jason Gardner, best known for his role as point guard on the 2001 national runner-up Arizona Wildcats, was named head coach on March 31. He spent this season as an assistant coach at Memphis.
Ken Bone
Fired
Washington State
Ernie Kent
Bone went just 80-85 with the Cougars over five seasons despite having some decent talent on his rosters, including Klay Thompson. The fan base had completely lost faith in him, and almost everyone knew a change had to be coming. WSU replaced him with former Oregon Ducks head coach Ernie Kent.
Pat Knight
Fired
Lamar
Tic Price

The son of Bob Knight made the NCAA Tournament his first season at Lamar in 2012. He went 6-50 the past two seasons before finally getting cut in mid-February. Tic Price took over as interim head coach and finished out the season 1-4 before losing the interim tag.
Jason James
Fired
Tennessee-Martin
Heath Shroyer
Tennessee Martin last won the regular conference season in 2009. Then coach Jason James took over and the team went 37-117 before the team decided to move on and hire UNLV assistant Heath Schroyer.
Mike Jarvis
Resigned
Florida Atlantic
Michael Curry
Florida Atlantic issued a statement saying Jarvis would retire, and then another statement saying Jarvis was resigning. He had a 77-109 record with FAU and never made the NCAA Tournament in his six seasons. CBS Sports reports a coaching search started with interest in Ohio State's Dave Dickerson. FAU replaced Jarvis with former NBA player Michael Curry, who has been associate coach for the Philadelphia 76ers and was head coach for the Detroit Pistons.
Jason Capel
Fired
Appalachian State
Jim Fox
Capel was 53-70 in his four seasons as coach of Appalachian State but bottomed out with a 9-21 record this season. Matt McMahon, currently an assistant at Murray State, is a favorite for a job because he spent 10 years as an assistant at Appalachian State prior to his current gig. Jim Fox takes over after spending more than a decade at Davidson. He was the associate head coach for the Wildcats the past two seasons.
Clarence Finley
Interim
Central Arkansas
Russ Pennell
Record: 21-14
Clarence Finley was named the interim coach for the 2013-14 season after Corliss Williamson left to be an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings. Finley is replaced by Russ Pennell. Pennell was the interim coach at Arizona in 2008-09 while Lute Olson was sidelined because of health issues. Most recently, he was the interim coach of the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA.
Greg Jackson
Fired
Delaware State
Keith Walker
Interim
Midseason coaching firings don't happen very often in the NCAA, so Delaware State was extra cold on this one. Greg Jackson was let go mid-January, finishing out his 14 year career at the school with 200 wins -- one short of the school record.
Tony Barbee
Fired
Auburn
Bruce Pearl
Barbee was fired just hours after the Tigers lost by 18 points to South Carolina in the SEC Tournament, ending a horrid four-year stretch without a single winning record. Barbee came to the Tigers from UTEP, fresh off a conference title, but finishes his Auburn career with a 49-75 record (and an 18-50 mark in conference play). The Tigers made a splash move to fill the void, hiring former Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl. Pearl had off-the-court issues with the NCAA, but built a consistent winner at Tennessee.
Max Good
Fired
Loyola Marymount
Mike Dunlap
Good was the WCC Coach of the Year in the 2011-12 season, but fell on hard times after that. LMU finished in the bottom of the WCC the past two seasons and went a combined 5-39 in conference play. The school has announced former Charlotte Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap is the new man for the job.
Brad Huse
Resigned
Montana State
Brian Fish
Four straight losing seasons ended Huse's time at Montana State. He went 107-133 overall and 14-17 in the 2013-14 season. Montana State picked Oregon assistant Brian Fish to take over the position on April 1. Fish has spent 25 years as an assistant coach and played collegiately for Clem Haskins at Western Kentucky before transferring to Marshall.
Stan Heath
Fired
South Florida
Orlando Antigua

South Florida was just 24-39 during the last two seasons and only had one NCAA Tournament appearance during Heath's seven seasons as the coach. The Bulls were beaten by Rutgers in the first round of the AAC Tournament, the same team that got beat by Louisville 92-31. Not a great look. The school agreed to a deal with Manhattan coach Steve Masiello, only to see that agreement fall apart after a background check revealed Masiello had not graduated from Kentucky as he indicated on his resume. USF then hired Orlando Antigua off of John Calipari's staff at Kentucky.

Cliff Warren
Fired
Jacksonville
Tony Jasick

After failing to finish Atlantic Sun play with a winning record for three straight seasons, the Dolphins will be looking for a new coach to roam the sidelines. Jacksonville was eliminated by eventual champion Mercer in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Sun Tournament this year. Tony Jasick signed a five-year contract after spending the last five years at Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne.

Jim Yarbrough
Fired
Southeastern Louisiana
Jay Ladner

After a 10-8 season in Southland play in 2012-2013, the Lions followed up that campaign with a disappointing 7-11. Their season ended with five losses in six games, sealing coach Yarbrough's fate. The Lions hired Jay Ladner, was the coach at Jones County Junior College (Miss.) the past two years. 11-seed Jones County won the NJCAA Tournament this year, becoming the lowest seed to win the NJCAA Tournament.

Tom Herrion
Fired
Marshall
Dan D'Antoni

In four seasons at the helm, Herrion was an even 67-67. However, his final two season saw the Thundering Herd finish under .500 in conference play. The coach was bought out of the remaining two years on his contract. He was replaced by Dan D'Antoni, a former Marshall player and brother of former Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni. D'Antoni hasn't coached in college since the 1970s. He has spent time as a high school coach and NBA assistant.

Ben Braun
Fired
Rice
Mike Rhoades

One of the least successful programs in Division I college basketball, Rice is constantly grasping at straws. With no NCAA Tournament appearances since 1970, expectations are low. In seven season, Braun notched just 51 wins and a .392 winning percentage. Mike Rhoades will be tasked with turning things around as the former VCU assistant was tabbed to replace Braun. Rhoades has Division III head coaching experience, but this is his first Division I head job.

Travis Williams
Fired
Tennessee State
Dana Ford

The Tigers finished this season just 5-25, which was enough for Williams to be removed form his position after just two years at the helm. Tennessee State has struggled after losing John Cooper to Miami (Ohio). On April 19, The Tennessean reported that Iowa State associate head coach Dana Ford had landed the job. Ford was also an assistant coach at Tennessee State under Cooper from 2009-11.

Louis Orr
Fired
Bowling Green
Chris Jans

After just one MAC championship in seven seasons, the Falcons removed Orr and his sub-.500 coaching record. Bowling Green hasn't been to the Big Dance since Nixon became President, and hasn't been since the field expanded to 64. The Falcons finished 6-12 in conference play this season and replaced Orr with Wichita State assistant Chris Jans.

Buzz Peterson
Fired
UNC-Wilmington
Kevin Keatts

A decade ago the Seahawks were the class of the Colonial. Having failed to sniff a conference title in his four seasons, Wilmington terminated Peterson with two years remaining on his contract. The Seahawks finished in last place in the CAA this season. Louisville associate head coach Kevin Keatts took the reins on April 1, proclaiming himself "a winner" at his introductory press conference. He had spent three years coaching under Rick Pitino.

Joey James
Fired
South Dakota
Craig Smith

James was an interim coach, taking the job after Dave Boots retired suddenly in September. The Coyotes finished just 6-8 in Summit League play in 2014, after finishing 5-11 last season. South Dakota replaced James with alum and Nebraska assistant Craig Smith.

Steve Masiello
on leave
Manhattan
Steve Masiello (returns)

The Jaspers are currently in a holding pattern while administrators review Masiello's credentials. Manhattan appeared on its way to a coaching search after Masiello agreed to a five-year deal with South Florida. When that deal fell through due to the resume discrepancy, Masiello returned to Manhattan. The program has agreed to bring Masiello back once he complete his undergraduate degree, which was reportedly not completed and led to the resume discrepancy.

Frankie Allen
fired
Maryland-Eastern Shore
Bobby Collins

Following six largely unsuccessful seasons, the Hawks decided to make a move. Maryland-Eastern Shore compiled a 42-139 record under Allen, including 6-24 this season. UMES hired Bobby Collins from Winston-Salem State. Collins' teams at Winston-Salem State reached the Division II NCAA Tournament in three of the past four seasons, and Collins led Hampton to a MEAC title and NCAA Tournament berth in 2005.

Cuonzo Martin
took Cal job
Tennessee
Donnie Tyndall

After three seasons in Knoxville, Cuonzo Martin left Tennessee to take the job at Cal. Martin made his first NCAA Tournament appearance with the Vols this season, leading them to the Sweet Sixteen from the First Four. However, Martin had been shopping around and was a candidate for the Marquette job. The tensions between him and the Tennessee fans could have ultimately led to his departure. The Vols hired Donnie Tyndall, who is coming off a successful tenure at Southern Miss.
Tony Jasik
took Jacksonville job
IPFW
Jon Coffman

After leading IPFW to a school record 25 wins and a berth in the CIT this season, coach Tony Jasik left the Mastodons for Jacksonville. IPFW stayed in-house to hire assistant Jon Coffman. Before coming to IPFW, Coffman was an assistant at Colgate and Stetson.
Fang Mitchell
Fired
Coppin State
searching

Coppin State opted to not renew the contract of coach Fang Mitchell, who had been at the school for 28 years. The high point of his career was an upset of two-seed South Carolina in the 1997 NCAA Tournament, but the Eagles suffered losing seasons in nine of the past 10 years.
Ted Woodward
Fired
Maine
searching

After a dismal 6-23 season that concluded a less-than-stellar 10-year career, Ted Woodward was fired by new Maine athletic director Karlton Creech.
Jim Molinari
took Nebraska assistant job
Western Illinois
Billy Wright

After helping Western Illinois earn two CBI berths and become one of the top teams in the Summit League, Jim Molinari left to become an assistant under Nebraska coach Tim MilesThe Leathernecks hired Billy Wright, who was an assistant under Molinari before leaving to become an assistant at Ball State last year.
Frank Haith
took Tulsa job
Missouri
Kim Anderson
Missouri welcomed home Kim Anderson, who was a star player for the Tigers and most recently led Division II Central Missouri to a national title. Anderson replaced Frank Haith, who left for Tulsa. In three seasons with the Tigers, Haith won 76 games and the 2012 Big 12 Tournament en route to being named AP coach of the year that season.
Donnie Tyndall
took Tennessee job
Southern Miss
Doc Sadler
Coach Donnie Tyndall left Southern Miss for Tennessee after an NIT run, and USM hired Doc Sadler, who has previous head coaching experience at UTEP and Nebraska, and was an assistant at Iowa State the past year.
