George Washington University Director of Athletics and Recreation Tanya Vogel announced today that Maurice Joseph will not return as head coach of the men’s basketball program.
In three seasons, Joseph compiled a 44-57 record, including 9-24 in 2018-19. GW saw its season end on Thursday with a loss in the second round of the Atlantic 10 Championship.
“This is a difficult day because Maurice has led this program with high integrity and has always been a great representative of George Washington University. He has been a part of our staff for eight seasons, earning a degree and meeting his wife, Kristen, a fellow GW graduate here. We hope they will always feel like a part of our family.”
“This decision was necessary because we are not reaching our full potential on the court. Our university leadership and I have high expectations for what this program can achieve in the near future. We will move forward with a national search for our new head coach who will help us get back to competing for Atlantic 10 Championships and being in the conversation for NCAA bids on a regular basis.”
