After five seasons, Johnny Jones has been fired as LSU's head basketball coach, vice chancellor and director of athletics Joe Alleva announced on Friday at a press conference. 

“Making a coaching change is the hardest thing I do particularly when the coach is a friend and respected alumni of this great university,” Alleva said in a release. “This decision was made with the firm belief that excellence in basketball at LSU is within reach.”

In his final season in Baton Rouge, the former LSU player led LSU to a 10-21 mark overall including 2-17 in SEC play culminating in a 79-52 loss to Mississippi State in the first round of the SEC Tournament on Wednesday.

The Time Picayune's Andrew Lopez first reported on Tuesday that LSU would part ways with Jones after the SEC Tournament. The team flew back from Nashville on Thursday and Jones had not been informed of his future as of Thursday.  

LSU set a program record with 15 consecutive losses this season, ending the streak in the Tigers' final home game of the season with a win over Tennessee. LSU was worst in the SEC in scoring defense, allowing 83 points per game this season.

"That's the appropriate thing to do in this case. Who knows? Maybe he would have won the SEC Championship in Nashville," Alleva explained. "You wait until the end of the season. That's the right thing to do."

The seat got hot for Jones following the 2015-16 season with No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons on the team, but the Tigers failed to make the NCAA Tournament with a 19-14 overall record.

"Last year did not come up to our expectations and this year when you lose 19 out of 21 games, that's pretty obvious," Alleva said. "I think the last two years have been a bit of a disappointment."

Jones compiled a 90-72 mark in his tenure as LSU coach, fourth all-time for LSU coaches. Jones was also an assistant under legendary coach Dale Brown from 1984-97. http://www.scout.com/college/lsu/story/1760976-one-door-about-to-close-a...

After one season as an assistant at Alabama, Jones spent 11 seasons at the helm of North Texas, where he went 190-144 and had five consecutive 20-win seasons before being hired at LSU in 2012. He also made a stop at Memphis, which included being interim coach during the 1999-2000 season.

Jones played in 121 games with 54 starts during his LSU playing career from 1980-84 and was a member of the LSU Final Four team in 1981. He finished his LSU career with 271 assists and 136 steals. 

Alleva said on Friday that a search will begin immediately for new leadership of the men's basketball program that will include a search firm as well as members of the LSU athletic department.

“This will be a national search,” said Alleva. “We are going after a proven winner and we’re going to use all the expertise and experience we can to find the right person for this job.

"I'm looking for someone who is a proven winner. Someone that has experience in the business and can bring enthusiasm and passion to the position, not to say that Johnny didn't do that, but it just didn't work out."

Deputy director of athletics and former Florida basketball graduate assistant Eddie Nunez will run the program until a new hire has been made, Alleva said. 

LSU assistants Randy Livingston, Robert Kirby and Brendan Suhr have also been fired from their positions.
