I thought the win over UCLA would be enough...Minnesota AD disagreed
Smith, who has spent the past six seasons with the Gophers, was fired on Monday afternoon, sources told CBSSports.com. His tenure ends with a 124-81 overall mark and a 46-62 record in Big Ten play.
Huge talent in the junior class there -- Jones, Vaughn, etc. Could be a program changer if they find a way to attact them.

Wow, what did they expect at Minnesota?
I think it was more an issue of they are vastly overpaying him for the results he was getting. His compensation was around $2 million which is pretty good money and not getting results comparable to other Big 10 schools. You can do what UM did for a lot less cash I would think.
They have a first-year AD and AAD, and the Saul Smith DUI debacle can't have helped, either.
Isn't he also the AD who hired Shaka at VCU? That could be off, but I'm pretty sure I read he was.
He is. That has to be the play here for UM I think. Go after Shaka before he is off the market.
He is. He also started the Villa 7 program for connecting assistant coaches who aspire to become head coaches with head coaching vacancies.
CBS weighs in on targets, from Smart to Enfield to Fip Saunders.
With Tubby Smith out at Minnesota, who is next up for the Golden Gophers?
