Holy shit: Dennis Wolff fired as BU's coach, sources say

If Fox Sports' Jeff Goodman is correct, BU has fired it's all-time winningest coach after his best season in four years:
Dennis Wolfff was fired as Boston University's head coach after his 15th season at the school, according to sources.

Wolff compiled a 247-197 record at Boston U., including a 17-13 mark this season. The Terriers lost in the quarterfinals of the America East tournament to UMBC.

Wolff has the most wins in school history. His best season at Boston was his third, when he led the Terriers to a 25-5 record and a 1997 NCAA tournament appearance. Boston also made the NCAA tourney in 2002 and the NIT for three straight seasons from 2003-2005.

The Terriers had three straight losing seasons before this one.
I am pretty speechless. I know he has many detractors amongst the fanbase, but I always assumed his job was pretty secure. His contract extension runs through the 2013-14 season, which is quite the pricey buyout.

My first impression is that I think he should have had at least one more shot with his current crop of juniors. Some players left, the team gets into ruts once in a while -- but it can't be denied that the man wins ballgames. He has a reputation as a defensive mastermind. Certainly some frequent commenters here should be pleased, and I'd be interested in their reaction.

Still shocked.

I didn't despise the guy but I think it's definitely a good thing that hes gone. Fresh start next year with some good freshmen recruits and the mature group of seniors. Also more and more games being shifted to Agganis; change is the theme. Hopefully this means we start racking up some championships and finally fulfilling the potential this team has. Any idea on who they might want as Wolff's replacement? I feel like they might just promote Vandross.

According to a source, Vandross was asked to stay, but it was unclear whether or not he had decided to stay. None of the other assistants were asked to remain at the school.

"Defensive mastermind"?
Offensive idiot. BU played tough defense but never had a clue on offense under DWolff.
He was the ultimate Little League Dad doing everything he could for his less-than-talenyed Kid to the detriment of the the team.

Vandross was only asked to stay on to answer the phones while they look for a new coach.

Watching a Dennis Wolff offensive scheme being run was like watching Amish porn
