Nebraska has fired coach Doc Sadler after the team he expected to be his best in his six years at the school posted the program's lowest win total since 2003.

Athletic director Tom Osborne announced the decision Friday.

The Cornhuskers finished 12-18 after losing 79-61 to Purdue in
the first round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday.

They tied with Penn State for last place in the conference with
a 4-14 record in their first season in the Big Ten. In the Huskers'
final five years in the Big 12, Sadler's teams never finished
higher than seventh.

Sadler was 101-89 overall with three NIT appearances at Nebraska
but just 34-64 in conference games.
