Brown has fired coach Jesse Agel. 

Agel was 39-79 in four years at the helm - including a 14-42 mark in the Ivy league. Brown was 8-23 this past season and 2-12 in league play. 

The school announced the decision on Monday afternoon. 

Agel was previously an assistant under Tom Brennan at Vermont and helped the Catamounts get to three NCAA tournaments. Associate head coach T.J. Sorrentine will take over on an interim basis.

Brown fires head coach Jesse Agel

Agel is a good guy but not a head coach, so Vermont passed over him when they hired Mike Lonergan (now at GW University).  The UVM sports community was upset with Lonergan's hire because Agel had been an intragal part of the Bennan staff which had the biggest win in UVM basketball history against Syracuse.  Also the best winning period of UVM Basketball.  Sorrentine was a big part of that NCAA team and went on to play pro ball in Europe.

Because of the Brennan legacy UVM has the most wins in NE Division 1 basketball since 2000 after UConn, and this year again won more then 20 games.

Good luck Jesse and to T.J.
