Kirk Saulny was fired Friday as men's basketball coach at Howard after an investigation determined he had broken NCAA and school rules.
Robert Frelow, a university spokesman, said two assistants also were fired. The school's Web site lists Darryl Bruce and Lamont Franklin as assistants on Saulny's staff. According to a university statement, two players also were declared ineligible for the spring semester.
The Washington Post reported today that the players are junior forward Donte Lincoln from Los Angeles Trade Tech and sophomore forward Darren Kennedy. The newspaper says that among the allegations are one that Lincoln's transcript had been altered.
Saulny was 0-9 in his second season after going 2-25 last season.
"We cannot and will not tolerate any conduct inconsistent with the NCAA bylaws and our own Code of Ethics and Conduct," Raymond Archer, Howard's vice president of student affairs, said in a written statement.
