Dartmouth’s Paul Cormier Fired As Men’s Basketball Coach

Monday, March 21, 2016
Hanover — Dartmouth College men’s basketball coach Paul Cormier was fired by athletic director Harry Sheehy today, a little more than two weeks after completing the sixth season of his second stint at the school.

Sheehy said a national search will begin immediately with the hope that its eventual target will lift the Big Green out of the Ivy League’s second tier. Dartmouth was 10-18 this season and finished sixth in the Ancient Eight.

“Paul did a really good job at getting us out of the mud and being more competitive but in my judgment, it was time for someone else to take us to the next level,” Sheehy said. “Paul worked incredibly hard and diligently here and he’s leaving the program far better off than when he took it over.”
