DePaul fires Head Basketball Coach Tony Stubblefield

DePaul Vice President and Director of Athletics DeWayne Peevy today announced a change in leadership of the DePaul men’s basketball program. Tony Stubblefield has been relieved of his duties as head coach amid his third season. 

“After evaluating the current state of our men’s basketball program, a decision was made to make a change in the head coaching position,” said Peevy. “We want to thank Coach Stubblefield for his hard work and determination over the last two-plus seasons to move our basketball program forward through a new era for DePaul Athletics. Unfortunately, we did not meet our goals.” 

Stubblefield went 28-54 (.341) in two-plus seasons as head coach at DePaul. The Blue Demons are 3-15 during the 2023-24 season.  

The university will immediately begin a national search for the next head men’s basketball coach. Matt Brady, Special Assistant to the Head Coach, has been appointed as interim head coach.
