After three consecutive losing seasons Jacksonville has decided to move in another direction, announcing that it has fired head coach Cliff Warren Friday afternoon. In nine season at the Atlantic Sun program Warren posted a record of 126 wins and 150 losses, going 1-26 in his debut season (2005-06).
In the five seasons that followed Warren averaged 18 wins per year, including 20-win seasons in 2009-10 and 2010-11. But that success couldn’t be sustained, with the Dolphins averaging 19 losses per season in Warren’s final three years as head coach.
Jacksonville finished the 2013-14 season with a 12-18 record, losing to Mercer in the Atlantic Sun quarterfinals.
“We thank coach Cliff Warren for his outstanding service to Jacksonville University and his many efforts on behalf of the men’s basketball program over the past nine years,” Jacksonville athletic director Brad Edwards said in the release according to the Florida Times-Union.
Of Jacksonville’s top five scores this past season just one, sophomore guard Jarvis Haywood (16.6 ppg), has eligibility remaining.
