Tubby Smith has been relieved of his head coaching duties at Minnesota. The former UK coach was fired this morning after six seasons with the Gophers, despite leading the team to the third round of the NCAA tournament this year.
Smith leaves Minnesota after a 124—81 overall record and a 46—62 record in conference play. He’ll receive a $2.5 million buyout on his way out.
Tough news for the man who won a title for Big Blue Nation in 1998.
