WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -Army has fired men's basketball coach Jim Crews after seven losing seasons.
Athletic Director Kevin Anderson confirms in a statement that Crew won't be on the bench when the Black Knights start the 2009-10 season.
Crews brought the Knights to the Patriot League tournament semifinals the past three seasons but his best overall record was 15-16 in 2006-07. Army went 11-19 last season.
In seven years, Crews had a record of 60-139, a .302 winning percentage.
Anderson says a national search for Crews' replacement will begin immediately. Army Deputy Athletic Director Gene Marshall will serve as interim coach.
