Ferry out at Duquesne

The Jim Ferry era is over at Duquesne.

The school announced on Monday that Ferry has been fired after five seasons as the Dukes’ men’s basketball coach.

Ferry, who received a contract extension in June 2015, was 60-97 during his five-year tenure. The Dukes went 21-65 in the Atlantic 10 over that span. They finished 10-22 overall this season, losing Wednesday in the A-10 tournament against St. Louis, 72-71.

On Monday afternoon, athletic director Dave Harper applauded Ferry’s character and commitment to working with players but said Duquesne’s struggles on the court prompted the decision.

“He’s a great person, and days like this are never easy,” Harper said. “However, the success on the court wasn’t where we’d like it to be, and we decided to make a change.”
