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.
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.
