Ball State fires Billy Taylor

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Ball State has fired Billy Taylor.

Taylor was 84-99 overall in six seasons and 44-52 in MAC play. The Cardinals finished 15-15 this past season and 8-8 in the league.

“This was a difficult decision, primarily because Billy was a tremendous representative of our athletics department and university,” Ball State athletic director Bill Scholl said. “Billy is a great man. Under his guidance our student-athletes conducted themselves properly and our most recent APR score was our highest rating since 2004-05. We thank him for leaving the program better than when he inherited it and we wish him well in the future.”
