MIAMI (AP) -Florida International has fired men's basketball coach Sergio Rouco after five straight losing seasons, including a 13-20 campaign this year.
Rouco finished with a 55-94 record in five years at FIU, which hasn't finished with a winning record since going 16-14 in the 1999-2000 season.
``We feel that it is now time to move in a different direction,'' FIU athletic director Pete Garcia said Monday. ``Sergio will remain in our organization in a different capacity and we look forward to continuing to work with him to further build the FIU program.''
Rouco did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.
