Georgia Tech’s head mean’s basketball coach Paul Hewitt has been “relieved of his duties,” according to the school’s athletic website. Tech Athletics Director Dan Radakovich made the announcement Saturday.

“I am very appreciative of Paul Hewitt’s dedication to Georgia Tech for the last 11 years,” Radakovich said. “Paul is an outstanding person who has made a positive impact on so many of our student-athletes.”

Radakovich said the school would begin a search for Hewitt’s replacement immediately. He said the school is looking to re-energize its fan base and bring new energy to Georgia Tech basketball.

Hewitt produced a record of 190-162 in 11 seasons with the Yellow Jackets. He led Georgia Tech to five NCAA Tournament appearances, but over the last four years, the Yellow Jackets have suffered three losing seasons.
