CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois-Chicago has fired men's basketball coach Howard Moore after five seasons and a 49-111 record.

UIC athletic director Jim Schmidt said Tuesday the school has aspirations "to be at the top of the Horizon League and we have not met our competitive goals." The school says it will immediately begin searching for a new coach.

Moore went 17-67 in the Horizon League during his tenure and the Flames finished this season 10-24.
