The University of Delaware has decided to make a change and announced on Friday morning that head men’s basketball coach Monte’ Ross has been relieved of his duties with the team.
The Blue Hens went 7-26 this season, with a mere 2-16 mark in conference play.
It was the worst season of Monte’ Ross’ career leading Delaware on the court and it brings a sour end to decade-long tenure in Newark.
After news of his firing broke, Ross went to Twitter to thank Delaware and its fans for the support during his time with the program.
I had a great run at UD (10 years)…Thanks to UD for the opportunity, really appreciate you guys, you were great to me and my family! #hens

With Delaware now looking for a new head coach and losing its best player, Kory Holden, to transfer, it looks like the immediate future is going to be a rough one for the Blue Hens.
