Holy Cross fires Brown after five years

WORCESTER, Mass. -- Holy Cross director of athletics Nathan Pine announced on Friday that head men's basketball coach Milan Brown has been relieved of his coaching duties at the college.

"I am disappointed that we must make this change, but the success of our men's basketball program has not been commensurate with our competitive expectations under Coach Brown's leadership," Pine said. "I thank Coach Brown for all his efforts at Holy Cross and his many contributions to the College community, especially his care and concern for our student-athletes."

Pine added: "A personnel decision like this is always difficult and affects a great many people. We are fortunate to have very talented student-athletes who are committed to working hard in our men's basketball program, and I am optimistic for our future."  

Brown served as the Crusaders' head coach for five seasons beginning in 2010. Over those five seasons, the team posted an overall record of 69-83 (.454), with a 42-43 mark against Patriot League opponents including regular season and postseason play.

Holy Cross will immediately begin a national search for the next head men's basketball coach.
