Ford leaves OSU after accumulating a 155-110 (63-75) record as the coach of the Cowboys and only notching one NCAA Tournament win. OSU is coming off of its worst finish under Ford, finishing 12-20 (3-15) in a season that was riddled with injuries.
“I like Travis Ford and his family,” OSU athletic director Mike Holder said in a press release. “He worked very hard at his job. Unfortunately, we have to move on.”
