Report: BC fires Skinner

Boston College has scheduled an afternoon press conference to announce it has fired basketball coach Al  Skinner, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday morning on its web site.

Skinner spent 13 seasons at Boston College.

He made seven NCAA tournament appearances.

This development comes less than a week after Skinner interviewed for the vacancy at St. John's. BC officials have already asked for permission to speak with Richmond's Chris Mooney and Cornell's Steve Donahue, according to the Boston Globe. Harvard's Tommy Amaker and Northeastern's Billy Coen are other possibilities.
