We’ve entered March Madness 2022 with the bracket officially set but many programs are already heading into the offseason with coaching changes. Here’s a look at the openings in college basketball this offseason, with more expected as the NCAA Tournament moves along.


Previous Coach: LaVall Jordan

After making the NCAA Tournament in his first season, Jordan has failed to make Butler a consistent contender in the Big East. After back-to-back sub-.500 campaigns, he’s out.

George Washington

Previous Coach: Jamion Christian

After three poor seasons, Christian is out at George Washington. We’ll see where the Colonials go for their next head coach.

Western Michigan

Previous Coach: Clayton Bates

Bates resigned after taking this job in 2020, so this is a quick turnaround for the Broncos. We’ll see who they tab next for the position.

Alabama State

Previous Coach: Mo Williams

Williams leaves for the gig at Jackson State, similar to how Georgia took Mike White from Florida. Alabama State missed out on the SWAC conference tournament, which tells you where this program is.


Previous Coach: Mark Gottfried

Gottfried couldn’t resurrect his career at CSNorthridge and is out.


Previous Coach: Lamont Paris

After a first-round exit at the hands of Illinois, Paris took over the job at South Carolina. That leaves the Mocs searching for a new head coach.

Cleveland State

Previous Coach: Dennis Gates

Gates took the job at Missouri, so Cleveland State will tasked with replacing him.

Sacramento State

Previous Coach: Brian Katz

Katz is retiring after 12 seasons, so this is another gig that is going to be interesting for the successor.

San Diego

Previous Coach: Sam Scholl

Scholl was always facing an uphill climb in the WCC and had some initial success but eventually wasn’t able to build on that.

Saint Peter’s

Previous Coach: Shaheen Holloway

After an Elite Eight run, Holloway is off to his alma mater Seton Hall. The Peacocks are set up well to be a conference mainstay for whoever takes over next.
