Fed up by his antics on and off the court, Seton Hall fired basketball Coach Bobby Gonzalez on Wednesday after a 19-win season. The dismissal came roughly 12 hours after the coach known as "Gonzo" endured an 87-69 loss in the opening round of the NIT, a game in which Seton Hall forward Herb Pope was ejected for hitting a Texas Tech player below the belt and Gonzalez picked up his seventh technical foul of the season. "Performance and success are not measured solely by wins and losses, but also in the conduct of those associated with the program," said Patrick Hobbs, the university law school dean who has been overseeing the athletic department since July.

Seton Hall fired coach Louis Orr on Friday, a little more than a week after the Pirates lost by 20 points in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Orr was 80-69 in five seasons and had two years left on his contract. Athletic Director Joe Quinlan cited recruiting and management of the basketball program as two areas of disagreement. Orr had been criticized for not having a better recruiting record in the New York-New Jersey area. Seton Hall has no recruits signed for next season.
