Stanford fires coach Johnny Dawkins after a disappointing finish in his eighth season

Johnny Dawkins was fired Monday after eight seasons as Stanford coach.

Dawkins took the Cardinal to the Sweet 16 of the 2014 NCAA tournament and won the NIT championship after the 2012 and 2015 seasons, but Stanford went 15-15 this season and finished ninth in the Pac-12 Conference at 8-10. Dawkins was 156-115 during his Stanford tenure.

Dawkins came to Stanford after working as a top assistant at alma mater Duke under coaching mentor Mike Krzyzewski. Stanford Athletic Director Bernard Muir said he has begun a national search for a new coach.
