Providence has hired former Fairfield coach Ed Cooley to replace the fired Keno Davis.
An 11-2 start, consecutive wins against ranked teams and the nation's second highest scorer couldn't save Keno Davis' job as men's basketball coach at Providence College.
"Father and I put together our list, and Michael Tranghese put together his list, and our top five were the same. But most notably, the top candidate on each list was Ed Cooley," Driscoll said.
"Ed Cooley did a great job rebuilding Fairfield into a consistently strong program," athletic director Bob Driscoll said. "Each season, his team showed improvement, and the win totals increased. Throughout this process, he used hard work and dedication, and that is part of what makes him a good fit for Providence College. I saw knowledge, passion and commitment that is necessary to lead our men's basketball program."
