LOGAN, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – After three seasons at the helm of the Utah State basketball program, head coach Tim Duryea was fired.

In his three years with the Aggies, Duryea had a record of 47-49, including a 17-17 mark this past season, which ended with a semifinal loss in the Mountain West Conference Tournament to New Mexico.

Athletic director John Hartwell made the announcement in a press release Sunday night.

“We appreciate everything that Tim and his staff have contributed to Utah State the past three seasons, both on and off the court,” said Hartwell. “However, we feel it is in the best interest of the program to make a change.”

Prior to being named the head coach at Utah State, Duryea was the longest tenured assistant basketball coach in school history as he spent 14 seasons on the Aggie bench under Stew Morrill.

A search for Duryea’s replacement will begin immediately.

Duryea was the 18th coach in the program’s history.
