Stanford fired head coach Jerod Haase after eight seasons and zero NCAA Tournament appearances.

Haase, 49, was hired to replace Johnny Dawkins in 2016 and the former Cal guard won as a recruiter, but failed to produce the desired results on the court. He finished with a 126-127 record.

“While the on-court results fell short of our expectations, Coach Haase led our men’s basketball program with great integrity and made a deeply positive impact on many Cardinal student-athletes,” Stanford director of athletics Bernard Muir said in a statement. “As we embark on the search for our next head coach, I wish Jerod and his family all the best in the future.”

The Cardinal posted a 14-18 record in 2023-24, the final season of the Pac-12 before the conference splits in multiple directions. Stanford is joining the ACC.

Stanford finished no better than third (2017-18) in the Pac-12 standings under Haase and last made the NCAA Tournament in 2014.
