HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — There will be a new man in charge in Hempstead next season.

Mo Cassara has been fired as Hofstra’s basketball coach after three seasons and Patrick Sellers has been appointed interim coach.

The Pride finished 7-25 this season and had four players arrested in December on burglary charges stemming from dormitory room break-ins.

Athletic director Jeffrey Hathaway announced the moves Friday and said the school will immediately begin its search for a new coach.

Cassara had a 38-59 record at Hofstra. His overall coaching mark is 60-89, including two seasons at Clark University. Sellers just completed his second season as an assistant at Hofstra.

Who should athletic director Jeffrey Hathaway target to be Hofstra’s next basketball coach? Sound off with your thoughts and comments below…
