Hawkeyes Fire Hoops Coach


IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa has fired coach Todd Lickliter after three losing seasons in a row.

Athletic director Gary Barta announced the firing Monday in Iowa City. Lickliter was not in attendance.

Lickliter was 38-58 with the Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes, who had just two upperclassmen play significant minutes, finished the season 10-22 -- their first with 20 losses.

Lickliter had four years left on his contract, which pays him $1.2 million a year. He spent six seasons at Butler before succeeding Steve Alford, who left for New Mexico.
