FAMU fires basketball coach

Florida A&M University announced Tuesday the release of coach Mike Gillespie, Sr. from his duties as head men’s basketball coach effective November 2.

Gillespie, who has been on paid administrative leave since May, when he was arrested for misdemeanor stalking, will remain on paid leave through November 2.

University President Dr. James Ammons said in a statement Tuesday that “this employment action is in the best interest of the Men’s Basketball Program and the University.”

Athletic Director Nelson Townsend added on Tuesday that “there will not be an interim head coach appointed, rather that a committee will be formed to begin a search for a replacement, whom we hope to name early in the fall.”

Gillespie compiled a 90-94 career mark at Florida A&M from 2001-02 to 2006-07, winning a pair of Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament titles in 2004 and 2007.

The Rattlers won the 2007 MEAC Tournament crown this past March, finishing the season 21-14 overall, after finishing second in the regular season race.
