Carmody era with Northwestern ends

The SportsXchange

The University of Northwestern announced Saturday that men's basketball coach Bill Carmody will not return next season.

Northwestern finished 13-19 this season, including losing their final nine games.

In Carmody's tenure, Northwestern failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. It did make the NIT tournaments in 2009 and 2012.

"Everyone's goal is to get to the NCAA tournament, and we haven't been able to accomplish that," Carmody said Thursday in the Chicago Tribune after losing in the first round of the Big Ten tournament to Iowa. "In 100 years (the Wildcats) haven't been able to accomplish that."

The Wildcats went 192-210 during Carmody's 13-year tenure.

Duke associate head coach Chris Collins, Bucknell coach Dave Paulsen, Valparaiso's Bryce Drew and Northern Iowa's Ben Jacobson are likely candidates, according to the Tribune.
