RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest has fired coach Danny Manning after six seasons in which the Demon Deacons had a winning record only once.

The decision came more than six weeks after the Demon Deacons lost to Pittsburgh in the opening game of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

Manning went 78-111 in Winston-Salem with a 30-80 mark in ACC regular-season games.

He made the NCAA Tournament just once, in 2017.

Athletic director John Currie said associate head coach Randolph Childress will be lead the program in the interim.
