According to the Houston Chronicle, “Ben Braun will not return as Rice men’s basketball coach after producing only one winning season in six years, a source close to the program said Thursday.
The Owls went 7-23 this season, including a 2-14 record in Conference USA play, and lost 18 of their last 20 games.
Meetings were believed to have been held Thursday regarding the basketball program, the source said. Braun had two years remaining on his contract, which ran through the 2015-16 season.
Rice officials were not immediately available for comment. The school has called a 2:30 p.m. news conference…”
