BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo fired women's basketball coach Cheryl Dozier on Tuesday, citing the team's struggles over the past two seasons.

The school said a national search for a replacement would begin immediately.

Dozier compiled an 89-107 record (44-68 Mid-American Conference) during seven seasons at Buffalo, with the team's best finish coming in 2000-01 with a tie for second in the MAC East Division.

In the last two seasons, the team posted a 10-45 record (6-26 Mid-American Conference) and won just two of its last 30 road games.
