Ernie Kent Terminated as Oregon Basketball Head Coach

In what is not surprising to anyone, Ernie Kent will no longer be the head coach of the Oregon Ducks. From the official statement just handed out:

The University of Oregon has terminated the contract of long-time men’s basketball head coach Ernie Kent, according to an announcement Tuesday by the school’s Director of Athletics Mike Bellotti.

"The accomplishments Ernie Kent has brought to the basketball program at the University of Oregon speak for themselves," said Bellotti. "No one can deny that this program stands in better shape today than when he took it over, and that’s a direct reflection on the passion he has displayed for this community, his alma mater and the players that he has brought into this program.

Bellotti's main concern seems to be consistency, and that just hasn't happened over the past two seasons. The team didn't show that improvement necessary this season. 

Good luck to Ernie in his future endeavors. He's the winningest coach in school history, and has given much to this school.
