Marist fires basketball coach Mike Maker, staff

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Marist College has fired men's basketball coach Mike Maker and his assistants, athletic director Tim Murray announced.

Murray said a national search for a new head coach would begin immediately.

In four seasons under Maker, Marist managed just 28 wins. The Red Foxes finished 6-25 this season, which ended last Thursday with a first-round loss to Fairfield in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament.

Maker finished with a record of 28-97, including 1-4 in MAAC tournament play.

The Marist men have not had a winning record in a decade.
