Jim Boylen has been fired

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.
