Cal fired men’s basketball coach Mark Fox one day after the Golden Bears wrapped the season with a 3-29 record, according to multiple reports Thursday.
Fox was 38-87 in four seasons but said entering the Pac-12 tournament he was blocking out reports he wouldn’t be back in Berkeley.
“I don’t pay any attention to any of it,” he said. “It comes with the territory. I’m not a young coach anymore.”
Washington State defeated Cal, 69-52, in the first round of the conference tournament on Wednesday.
Cal finished 12th in the Pac-12, losing 15 consecutive games to end the regular season.
Fox, 54, previously coached at Nevada (2004-09) and spent nine seasons at Georgia (2009-18) prior to being named head coach of the Golden Bears.
He has a 324-263 career record, including a 123-43 run at Nevada.
Cal’s last NCAA Tournament appearance came in 2016 and the Golden Bears last won a game in the marquee college basketball event in 2013.
