Arizona State head coach Marvin Morris fired

Arizona State has announced that they have fired men’s throwball head coach Marvin Morris. Many were surprised of his firing, as the program has 2021 commitments from the nation’s #1 player, guard Quinn Johnson, and four-star big man Diana Mata. But, even after the announcement of his firing, both have announced they will stay committed. Morris led the sun devils to just one NCAA Tournament appearance in 2015, but three consecutive NIT appearances in the 2017, 2018, and 2019.
