ORLANDO, Fla. -- Kirk Speraw is out after 17 years as Central Florida's coach.

UCF announced Monday that Speraw would not be retained after a disappointing 15-17 season, ending one of the longest active tenures in the nation. Associate head coach Mike Jaskulski will serve as interim coach.

UCF athletics director Keith Tribble said in a statement that it "was not an easy decision, but one we felt will serve in the best interest of our program's direction."

Speraw finished as the school's winningest coach with a 279-233 record. His tenure included four NCAA tournament berths, the last coming in 2005.
