Northwestern has announced it has fired Bill Carmody after 13 seasons.
ESPN.com first reported that the team was set to be notified on Saturday morning.
Carmody was 192-210 in his tenure but was unable to take the program to its first-ever NCAA tournament berth. Northwestern went to four consecutive NIT's prior to this season, when the Wildcats finished 13-19 overall and 4-14 in league play.
The frontrunner to replace Carmody, sources told CBSSports.com, is Duke assistant coach and Illinois native Chris Collins.
