Miami dumps both basketball coaches
Both the men's and women's coaches are out at Miami.

Men's coach John Cooper's contract wasn't renewed. The women's coach, Cleve Wright, was "relieved of his duties," according to the team's website.

The announcement quoted Athletics Director David Sayler as saying, "For years Miami basketball was the preeminent leader of the Mid-American Conference, and we plan to take all necessary steps to make that happen once more.”

Miami's men's team had an overall record of 59-100 in Cooper’s five seasons, including a 29-59 mark in MAC play. The Redhawks were 11-21 this season.

Wright was 35-87 in four seasons with the women. His team was 11-21 and ninth in the MAC this year.

Anybody else in trouble on the men's side, do you think (aside from the Dambrot noise)?

Worst women's teams besides Miami were Eastern Michigan (new coach this season), Akron (Jodi Kest has been successful too long for one bad year to hurt her) and Bowling Green.

I think Jennifer Roos at BG is OK for now, but she hasn't had a good year with her own players. Her first couple of years she inherited good teams from Curt Miller. Another bad year and her job gets precarious.

"Where's Charley"? Great name for a musical. I'd cast Ray Bolger.
