Wake Forest fires basketball coach Danny Manning
Wake Forest has fired basketball coach Danny Manning after six seasons, the school announced Saturday.
"After a comprehensive review of the men's basketball program, and with the support of President Hatch and University leadership, I have determined that it is time for a change in our head coaching position,'' athletic director John Currie said in a statement. The Demon Deacons never finished above .500 in the ACC under Manning, who had a 14-42 conference record over the past three seasons. Last season, they went 13-18 overall and 6-14 in the ACC, finishing in a tie for last in the conference standings. Wake Forest finished 12th or worse in the league in five of Manning's six seasons. Overall, Manning went 78-111 in his six seasons in Winston-Salem and 30-80 in conference play.
