KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Western Michigan basketball coach Steve Hawkins has been fired. Hawkins spent 17 seasons as head coach of the Broncos.
WMU went 13-19 this season and was eliminated by Toledo 76-73 in the Mid-American Conference Tournament on Monday.
Athletic director Kathy Beauregard says she decided to make a change in the leadership of the men's basketball program, and the search for a new coach begins immediately.
Hawkins is the only coach in program history to win 100 MAC games.
