Swimming coach Tierney-Walker fired by Arizona State

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona State has fired swimming coach Dorsey Tierney-Walker after six seasons.

Sun Devils athletic director Ray Anderson made the announcement Tuesday.

Arizona State's women have finished no higher than sixth in the Pac-12 under Tierney-Walker and the men no better than fifth.

Mark Bradshaw will remain as diving coach.

Anderson has made five coaching changes since becoming athletic director a little more than a year ago, including firing men's basketball coach Herb Sendek last week.
