Morgan was summoned to a meeting with athletic director Jamie Pollard and president Gregory Geoffroy at 10 p.m. Thursday night. Morgan said he was told at the meeting that he was fired, as was his staff.
Morgan, 55, had been the coach for three years after replacing Larry Eustachy on May 14, 2003. [snip]
Morgan said he was told the basketball program should be the marquee of the athletic department but "we don't think you can do that."
Morgan said, "The only person who had a better first three years here was Tim Floyd."
Snyder, Wooldridge, Sutton (probably), Collier (almost), and now Morgan. Tough year for some Big 12 coaches.
