Tim Duryea Out As Utah State Men’s Basketball Coach, Per Reports
Duryea has been fired after three seasons in Logan
Utah State reached the Mountain West Tournament semifinals this past weekend
Utah State has fired head coach Tim Duryea after three seasons, per reports.
The news came Sunday afternoon after the NCAA Tournament reveal.
“We appreciate everything that Tim and his staff have contributed to Utah State the past three seasons, both on and off the court. However, we feel it is in the best interest of the program to make a change,” Utah State athletic director John Hartwell said in a statement.
Duryea closes his tenure at Utah State with a 48-49 record in three years. He took over for Stew Morrill, the longtime Aggie head coach who enjoyed tremendous success and transformed the USU program.
With plenty of talent in the program, it appears the university did not believe Duryea completed the tasks that were set forth. Duryea had the luxury of coaching Jalen Moore, Koby McEwen, Shane Rector, and Sam Merrill during his time as head coach.
This year’s team struggled with injuries and close losses but ultimately were two wins shy of an NCAA Tournament berth.
