Evansville parted ways with coach Todd Lickliter and his entire staff on Thursday.
The move comes two weeks after Kenneth “Ziggy” Siegfried became Evansville’s new athletic director.
“I have had the opportunity to meet with Coach Lickliter and it is obvious that he is an outstanding individual who cares greatly for this University and our student-athletes,” Siegfried said in a statement. “Todd and his staff have exemplified the true meaning and purpose of a Purple Ace. We wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
Lickliter, 67, was 15-53 in less than three seasons at the school, including a 6-24 mark last season.
Overall, Lickliter has a 184-172 record in 12 Division I seasons, including a six-season stint at Butler and three at Iowa. Lickliter led Butler to two NCAA Tournament appearances.
Lickliter went 0-13 after taking over the Purple Aces midway through the 2019-20 season. He went 9-16 the following campaign.
Evansville hasn’t reached the NCAA Tournament since 1999, when it lost to Kansas in the first round.
