Report: Northwestern parts ways with Carmody

By Eye on College Basketball staff | CBSSports.com

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.
