NEW YORK (AP) St. John's split with basketball coach Steve Lavin on Friday after five seasons, announcing the decision a week following the Red Storm's loss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The school said it "mutually agreed to part ways" with Lavin. He had one year left on his contract.
The Red Storm lost to San Diego State 76-64 to finish at 21-12. Lavin and the Red Storm reached the NCAAs in his first and last seasons.
