Mark Gottfried “Resigns”

***UPDATE*** The University of Alabama and Mark Gottfried released a statement Monday afternoon saying the ‘Bama head basketball coach has resigned (Earlier reports indicated that he was fired). Puh-TAY-to/Puh-TAH-to…he’s out.

Assistant Philip Pearson will coach the Tide for the remainder of the season. Alabama plays next on Jan. 29th – at Arkansas.

Mal and I sat down today, and we talked. At that point, I notified him of my intention to resign as head coach of the men’s basketball program…I love the University of Alabama, but I feel that it is in the best interests of everyone involved.

– Former Head Basketball Coach, Mark Gottfried

Alabama has fired head basketball coach Mark Gottfried has resigned after almost 11 seasons, according to Cecil Hurt of Tide Sports/Tuscaloosa News. Gottfried, who played for UA, was 210-131 overall and 83-82 in SEC play as head coach in Tuscaloosa. Under him, the Crimson Tide won the SEC West twice (’01-’02 and ’04-’05) and the entire SEC once (’01-’02). His most memorable season came during 2003-2004 when the Tide reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament.
