Tennessee State has fired head coach Travis Williams following a 5-25 season.

Williams took over the program two seasons ago, after then head-coach John Cooper left for the head coaching job at Miami (OH). Cooper led Tennessee State to the Ohio Valley Conference title game, with Williams as an assistant.

In his first year, Williams led the team to an 18-15 record and the four-seed in the conference tournament, falling to eventual champion Belmont in the OVC tournament semifinals. This season, the Tigers were just 5-25 without a single non-conference win against Division I competition, and failed to qualify for the OVC Tournament.

“We’re disappointed to have to do this after just two years, but we feel that it’s something that’s in the best interest of our program and our student-athletes and our future,” athletic director Teresa Phillips told The Tennessean.

Williams was 23-40 in two seasons with the Tigers.
