Georgia State fires Rod Barnes

  •  

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia State coach Rod Barnes has been fired after four seasons and will not be on the bench for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament.

Athletic director Cheryl L. Levick said Sunday assistant Paul Graham will serve as interim coach as a national search for Barnes' replacement begins. Georgia State finished the regular season 11-18 and 6-12 in the conference.

Levick says the record "simply does not reflect" the success she expects of the program.

Barnes was 44-79 in four seasons, including 24-48 in conference games.

Graham was the Washington State head coach from 2003-07.
