TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -Stan Joplin was fired as University of Toledo men's basketball after 12 years.
Athletic director Mike O'Brien said the program needs new direction and energy after an 11-19 finish and a disappointing recruiting class.
Joplin was MAC coach of the year last season. O'Brien said the coach was surprised when he got the news Sunday.
Joplin had a 203-155 record at Toledo. He signed a three-year extension in 2006 that was to have taken him through next season.
