Boston College severed ties with men’s basketball coach Jim Christian on Monday, firing him in the middle of his seventh season coaching the Eagles program and relieving him of his duties effectively immediately with five regular-season games remaining.

Athletic director Pat Kraft, who was hired by Boston College from Temple last summer, announced the move Monday.

Christian had just one winning season during his stint with the program — a 19-16 campaign in 2017-18 — and struggled to gain traction before it and after. He amassed a 78-132 overall record and went 26-94 in ACC play.
