Chuck Martin is out as head coach at Marist, the school announced Thursday.

Martin was hired in the spring of 2008 after spending time as an assistant coach at Memphis, St. John's, Drexel, Massachusetts and Manhattan.

“I'm very appreciative of the hard work Chuck and his staff demonstrated over the past five years,” athletic director Tim Murray said in a release. “Chuck represented Marist with class, and conducted his program with great passion and integrity. I think that Chuck is a wonderful person, and I have the utmost respect for him.”

Martin went just 10-21 this season, as the Red Foxes finished eighth in the MAAC with a 6-12 record. In five seasons, Martin went 41-118, finishing in last place three times and eighth place the past two years.
