BOCA RATON, Fla. - (March 16, 2018) – Michael Curry has been relieved of his duties as Florida Atlantic University’s Head Men’s Basketball Coach, effective immediately, Brian White, FAU’s vice president and director of athletics, announced today.
The university would like to thank Coach Curry for his commitment to FAU during his time with the Owls. Unfortunately, results on the court did not meet expectations.
Curry served four seasons as the FAU Men’s head basketball coach from 2014 to 2018. During that time, the Owls recorded a 39-84 record.
“Michael is a wonderful person and very well liked throughout the university and the community at large,” White said. “I have no doubt you will join me in wishing him every success for the future, and to thank him for his dedication and commitment to FAU.”
With respect for search process, the university will make no further public comment until an announcement of FAU’s next Men’s head basketball coach is made.
I will be renewing this season solely based on the change and anything has to be an improvement over what we had before.
Give me the Ely coach for all I care, that guy knows how to win!
Go for a BIG SPLASH hire like Pitino (Kiffin style hiring for BB - rich Coach who really does NOT need huge $$$ but DOES need to rebuild his NAME and CREDIBILITY),
Or go for up and comer from place like UMBB who will NOT get hired now by BIG program but needs a stepping stone level bump.
Yesterday is WHY football will NEVER allow for an even 16 team real tourney - too afraid of the upsets. NCAA needs to TAKE CHARGE AND FORCE THIS - TOO MUCH $$$ BEING LEFT ON TABLE IMHO!!!! And schools and conferences can make MUCH more HOSTINMG early round games on campus of higher seeds.
But….NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!
BIG IF HUH!
