AP sources: Texas fires coach Barnes after 17 years

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes will be released after yet another quick exit from the postseason, people with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Saturday.

The decision came after Texas athletic director Steve Patterson and Barnes met Saturday, according to the people who requested anonymity because the school wasn't expected to make a formal announcement before Sunday.

The 60-year-old Barnes shaped Texas into a national basketball power with three Big 12 championships and 16 NCAA Tournament appearances in 17 years. He had four years left on his contract at $2.65 million per year and will receive a severance of $1.75 million under his contract because he is being released before April 1.
