Keno Davis fired after nine seasons at Central Michigan

Central Michigan announced Monday that head men’s basketball coach Keno Davis had been fired after nine seasons at the helm. Davis was 142-143 during his tenure, reaching the postseason four times but never the NCAA Tournament. The Chippewas were 7-16 (3-13) this year.

“I am extremely grateful to Keno for the impact he has made on our student-athletes and the greater CMU community,” AD Amy Folan said in a statement.  “Decisions like this are always difficult.  However, after spending the last few months evaluating all aspects of our program, I believe it is necessary and appropriate to make a change in leadership at this time to achieve the goals we have for men’s basketball.”

The CMU program was last in the NCAA Tournament in 2003. A national search for Davis’ replacement is now underway.
