Pfeifer fired after two seasons, 12-48 record

MOSCOW, Idaho -- Idaho fired men's basketball coach George Pfeifer after two seasons and a 12-48 record.

While Pfeifer improved the competitiveness of the program, it was time for a change, athletic director Rob Spear said Tuesday.

The Vandals were 8-21 this season and lost in the quarterfinals of the Western Athletic Conference tournament. Pfeifer will be paid $170,000 for the final year of his contract.
