Mo Cassara has been fired as Hofstra's basketball coach after three seasons and Patrick Sellers has been appointed interim coach.
The Pride finished 7-25 this season and had four players arrested in December on burglary charges stemming from dormitory room break-ins.
Athletic director Jeffrey Hathaway announced the moves Friday and said the school will immediately begin its search for a new coach.
Cassara had a 38-59 record at Hofstra. His overall coaching mark is 60-89, including two seasons at Clark University. Sellers just completed his second season as an assistant at Hofstra.
