Vacancy at Old Dominion

Old Dominion was not a very good team this season. The Monarchs, who had been to either the NCAA or NIT five of the past eight seasons, struggled mightily, even with the addition of NC State big DeShawn Painter. During a recent loss to George Mason, a game that was televised on the NBC College Sports network, ODU lost badly, so perhaps it was not a coincidence that Taylor was not on this week's CAA conference call. Per Ed Miller of the Virginia Pilot, Taylor has been dismissed by the soon-to-be Conference USA program.
