CLEVELAND (AP) — Coach Dennis Felton has been fired by Cleveland State after just two seasons.
Felton and his entire staff were let go Friday. Athletic director Scott Garrett says in a statement the school expects coaches to “operate with the expectation that they should build a culture supportive of our student-athletes in the classroom, accountable for their conduct as representatives of the University, and for their performance on the court.”
Felton, who replaced Gary Waters in 2017, went 22-44 in his two seasons. The 56-year-old previously coached at Western Kentucky and Georgia.
Cleveland State’s program has struggled in recent years. The Vikings went just 5-13 in the Horizon League last season.
Cleveland State last made the NCAA Tournament in 2009.
The school said former Vikings player and broadcast analyst Pat Vuyanich will serve as a special assistant for the program until a coach is hired.
