Wake Forest Fires Hoops Coach Gaudio

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Wake Forest has fired men's basketball coach Dino Gaudio after three seasons.

Athletic director Ron Wellman said at a hastily drawn news conference Wednesday that "the basis for the decision was our late-season and postseason performances."

Gaudio was a combined 1-5 in Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA tournaments. He was 61-31 at Wake Forest since he was hired in 2007 to replace Skip Prosser, who died of a heart attack.

Wellman emphasized that the decision "was not a snap judgment."
Neither Gaudio nor his assistants returned several messages left on their cell phones.

    I didn't particularly like the guy, but I think this might be a mistake.
