NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The worst season in the history of Vanderbilt men’s basketball has cost coach Bryce Drew his job.

Vanderbilt went 9-23 and was the first team in 65 years to go winless in the Southeastern Conference. Drew went 40-59 record in three seasons with the Commodores.

The announcement Friday by new athletic director Malcolm Turner comes a week after the Commodores ended a season with their most losses.

Turner said in a statement that Vanderbilt is “committed to competing at the highest levels on and off the court.”

The previous SEC team to go winless in league play was Georgia Tech in 1953-54.
