    Wake Forest fires coach after 3 years

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest fired men's basketball coach Dino Gaudio after three seasons Wednesday during a hastily drawn news conference.
    Athletic director Ron Wellman said "the basis for the decision was our late-season and postseason performances." Gaudio was a combined 1-5 in Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA tournaments, the only victory coming in the first round of the NCAA tournament this year against Texas, when Ishmael Smith hit a last-second jumper in overtime.

    Gaudio was 61-31 at Wake Forest since he was hired in 2007 to replace Skip Prosser, who died of a heart attack. Gaudio received a contract extension in October, but pressure has been mounting because of those poor late-season performances.

    OK, so there are three full-time assistant coaches, from a big-time program, now out of jobs.
    Maybe Gmac will interview one...or all three?

    First off there has to be much more to the story, if not he got screwed over badly.

    Why do you assume that? Maybe they just have higher expectations for their program than he is delivering?

    Having high expectations appears to be nearly unfathomable to the typical Cyclone fan for some reason.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    No comparison to our situation. This guy was hired after Skip Prosser died. He wasn't hired by choice but more necessity.
