Grand Canyon University has fired basketball coach Dan Majerle after a disappointing year. 

The school announced the former Phoenix Suns star's firing hours after the Western Athletic Conference and NCAA Tournament were canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus.

Majerle was hired in 2013 to help usher the Antelopes through their transition into Division I.

Grand Canyon won at least 20 games its first two years in Division I, but went 13-17 this season.

Former New Mexico State and UNLV coach Marvin Menzies has been named interim coach.
