Utah has fired Jim Boylen as its men's basketball coach, a source told CBSSports.com on Saturday.
An official announcement is expected soon.
The decision comes two days after a column headlined "It's time for Boylen to go" was published in the Salt Lake City Tribune. Boylen coached the Utes for four seasons and made the NCAA tournament once. He had a losing record in the Mountain West Conference each of the other three years.
Utah finished 6-10 in the league this season.
