Steve Wojciechowski fired after seven seasons at Marquette
Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski is out after seven seasons at the helm, the school announced on Friday. He was 128-95 overall and went to the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and 2019 (both First Round losses).
“After a thorough evaluation of our program over the last week, which included multiple conversations with Steve, I concluded that now is the right time for a new leader of our storied program,” AD Bill Scholl in the release. “I’m confident that our history of success and our commitment to developing young men who are leaders on and off the court will attract the highest caliber of coaching talent. I want to thank Steve for his dedication to our student-athletes, and for how he represented our men’s basketball program and the university.”
This was the first head coaching job for Wojciechowski, who arrived in 2014 after 15 seasons coaching under Mike Krzyzewski at alma mater Duke. He won 20+ games three times in his first five years in Milwaukee, but this past season the Eagles finished under .500 for the second time of his tenure.
