Georgia Tech has fired head coach Josh Pastner after seven seasons, the school announced on Friday.
Pastner had a 109-114 record during his tenure at Georgia Tech, including a 51-78 record in the ACC. The Yellow Jackets only made one NCAA Tournament appearance under Pastner.
Georgia Tech struggled this season, going 15-18 (including a 6-14 conference record). The year before, the Yellow Jackets were 12-20.
"We have high expectations at Georgia Tech for all of our sports programs, and it is imperative that our storied men's basketball program achieves a greater level of success," first-year athletic director J Batt said.
"Our men's basketball program is important to our department and to our institution. We will not shy away from expecting to consistently compete for ACC championships, NCAA tournament appearances and sustained success."
Georgia Tech's season ended on Wednesday with a 89-81 loss to Pitt in the second round of the ACC Tournament.
Pastner, 45, was named the ACC Coach of the Year in 2017. Prior to leading the Yellow Jackets, he coached at Memphis for seven years.
