Marshall decided to part ways with basketball coach Tom Herrion on Friday, according to Derek Redd of the Charleston Daily Mail in West Virginia.

After 20-win seasons in each of his first two years, including the school's first postseason appearance in 24 years (the 2012 NIT), Herrion led the Thundering Herd to 13 wins last season and only 11 this year.

Marshall lost to Old Dominion, 73-58, in the second round of the Conference USA tournament on Wednesday — its eighth loss in its last 11 games.

The Thunder Herd's 41 losses the last two years are the most during a two-year span in program history, according to Redd.

Herrion, 46, was 67-67 in four seasons at Marshall, including 28-36 in conference.

Writes Redd: "According to Herrion's contract, if he is fired without cause, he is owed his 'annual salary' for each remaining year of the deal, prorated for any partial year. Herrion has two years and three months left on his contract with a current annual salary of $285,755. Herrion will receive that in a lump sum within 30 days."
