Wake Forest has fired basketball coach Dino Gaudio, according to a report at WXII12.com in North Carolina.
Gaudio coached Wake Forest for three seasons, taking over after the sudden death of Skip Prosser. He made the NCAA tournament in each of the past two years, but still underachieved in the eyes of some considering he had three NBA players on last season's roster (James Johnson, Jeff Teague, and Al-Farouq Aminu) but still lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Those three players are now gone. Gaudio is, too.
This development means two ACC jobs are open.
Clemson opened Tuesday when Oliver Purnell left for DePaul.
