Fairfield fires basketball coach Johnson after 9-22 season

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) Fairfield has fired coach Sydney Johnson after a 9-22 season.

Johnson, who previously led Princeton to a berth in the NCAA Tournament, was hired at Fairfield in 2011, after Ed Cooley left for Providence. Fairfield fired Johnson on Monday.

He compiled a 116-147 record over eight seasons and received a contract extension after the Stags made it to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament final a year ago.
