PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Pennsylvania has fired men's basketball coach Glen Miller after a winless start to the season.
Athletic department officials announced the firing Monday after the Quakers struggled to an 0-7 start, including a 103-65 loss to No. 8 Villanova on Nov. 16. University officials scheduled a news conference for 1:30 p.m. to discuss the decision.
Assistant coach Jerome Allen will serve as interim head coach.
Miller was 45-52 overall since being hired in 2006 to replace the departed Fran Dunphy. In his first season, Miller led the Quakers to a 22-8 record and an NCAA tournament appearance, but Penn has declined steadily since.
After seven seasons at Brown, Miller replaced Dunphy when he left to take over at Temple for retired Hall of Fame coach John Chaney.
