Harvard doesn't renew Sullivan's contract
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Frank Sullivan is out as Harvard's basketball coach Monday following a 12-16 season.
Harvard did not renew the contract of Sullivan, who coached the Crimson for 16 seasons and went 178-245. Harvard was 5-9 in Ivy League play, including a season-ending 76-66 loss to Columbia on Saturday.
The school will immediately begin a search for a new coach, athletic director Bob Scalise said.
"I am hopeful that a change in leadership of our men's basketball program will bring us closer to our goals of consistently contending for the Ivy League championship," Scalise said in a statement.
Harvard last made the NCAA Tournament in 1946.
Sullivan could not immediately be reached for comment. A message was left at his office phone Monday.
