Herb Sendek will no longer walk the sideline for Arizona State, as he was fired by the team Tuesday.

He spent nine seasons coaching the Sun Devils, after completing a 10-year tenure at North Carolina State. Behind help from James Harden, who has turned out to be a superstar in the NBA, Sendek was able to lead Arizona State to the NCAA Tournament in 2009, and won a first-round game over Temple.

Sendek got them back to the Big Dance last season, but they lost their first game to Texas. He led NC State to five consecutive tournament appearances from 2002 to 2006.

He had a combined record of 159-137 at Arizona State and finished this past season just two games above .500, 18-16.

The 51-year-old won ACC Coach of the Year in 2004 with NC State, Pac-10 Coach of the Year in 2010 with the Sun Devils and MAC Coach of the Year in 1995 with Miami (Ohio) —  his first year as head coach of a college basketball program.

    I actually clarified this in the description, but here it is again: it’s necessary to be able to send your translations in SMS or Email. However, I thought of a better way to do that, so I’ll probably remove this permission in the next version.Glad you like the app.

    When Shaq’s jersey goes into the rafters, I will stand and cheer and be grateful. He was a great Laker and deserves to be in the pantheon.Until that day, especially while he is in the league, I got no love whatsoever for Shaq, his game, or his teams.
