Gottfried quits ’Bama job

January 27, 2009


— Mark Gottfried resigned as Alabama’s basketball coach Monday, leaving in the middle of his 11th season amid criticism of both the team’s play and the departure of a star player.

The school said Gottfried will immediately be replaced by assistant coach Philip Pearson. Alabama’s next game is Thursday at Arkansas.

The Crimson Tide’s record this season is 12-7, 2-3 in the Southeastern Conference.
