PHILADELPHIA (AP) La Salle fired coach Ashley Howard on Monday after four seasons without a winning record.
Howard, once a top assistant under Jay Wright at Villanova, went 45-71 in four seasons and finished 11-19 this season. The Explorers have been to just one NCAA Tournament since 1992 and have found little success in the Atlantic 10.
"Unfortunately, I was not able to lead the program to the heights and expectations that were set. I am better for my experience as a head coach at La Salle," Howard said Monday.
