Head coach Steve Wojciechowski is outside at Marquette following seven seasons, the school announced Friday.
The Golden Eagles ended 13-14 complete and 8-11 in Big East play last season.
“Following an exhaustive evaluation of our schedule throughout the previous week, which contained several discussions with Steve, I reasoned that today is the correct time to get a new leader of the storied schedule,” Marquette athletic director Bill Scholl stated. “I’m convinced that our history of success and our commitment to growing young guys that are leaders on and off the court will bring the maximum quality of coaching ability. I would like to thank Steve for his devotion to our student-athletes, also for the way he represented our men’s basketball program and the college. We want Steve, Lindsay, Jack and Charlie nothing but the Very Best in the long run.”
Last year, they’d have left a third NCAA tournament appearance behind the stellar play from Markus Howard, but the event has been canceled on account of this coronavirus pandemic.
This year, Marquette had remarkable wins Wisconsin and Creighton in December but could not build it off the remainder of the way. A stretch of six losses in seven games midway during Big East play finished the Golden Eagles’ NCAA hopes despite winning four to finish the year.
In seven seasons, Wojciechowski travelled 128-95 complete and 59-68 in league playwith.
