Tom Moore and Quinnipiac have parted ways after 10 seasons, the school announced on Tuesday.

Moore went 162-146 in his tenure with the Bobcats, but he was just 19-42 over the course of the last two seasons. After posting winning conference records in each of his first seven seasons, Moore’s teams went just 22-38 in MAAC play the last three years.

“After reviewing the last two seasons and talking with Coach Moore, I have decided that a change in leadership of the men’s basketball program is needed for it to move forward in meeting our goals,” Quinnipiac athletic director Greg Amodio said in a statement. “We are grateful to Tom Moore and his staff for their commitment to our program over the past 10 years. We appreciate all that he has done for the University in guiding his student-athletes’ performance on the court and in the classroom.”

The school has hired DHR International search firm to assist in finding a new coach.
