Utah basketball coach Jim Boylen has been fired after a 13-18 finish. The news isn't surprising, but I won't grave dance. I liked Boylen. I wanted him to succeed. I'm disappointed and saddened it did not work out.
Hopefully he finds a new gig and proves to be a successful head coach.
With that said, the decision was the right one. Utah could not afford to bring Boylen back - not after two consecutive losing seasons.
I wish Boylen the best of luck and thank him for running the Utah program with integrity.
