Tennessee fires men's basketball coach Donnie Tyndall

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The NCAA investigation at his former school lingered over Donnie Tyndall before he ever coached a game for Tennessee, and now his unethical actions at Southern Mississippi have led to his firing after only one season.

The decision to part ways with Tyndall on Friday leaves the Volunteers once again searching for someone to stabilize a men's basketball program that has recently been in constant upheaval.

Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said it would be fair to say it was a mistake to hire Tyndall, who Hart said acknowledged deleting emails that could have been relevant to the Southern Mississippi investigation. In his termination letter, Hart states the emails were deleted by Tyndall on or around Nov. 18, less than two weeks after Southern Mississippi announced it was under investigation.
