    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California fired coach men's basketball Henry Bibby abruptly Monday, just four games into his ninth season.

    The Trojans are 2-2.

    "I understand that the timing of this is unorthodox," athletic director Mike Garrett said in a statement. "But I feel strongly that our men's basketball program needs to go in a different direction. And it was obvious to me that change had to be made now."

    Assistant Jim Sala was appointed interim coach for the rest of the season. (Related item: Southern Cal team report, schedule, stats, roster)

    Bibby had an overall record of 131-111. His 1997, 2001 and 2002 teams made it to the NCAA Tournament, including a final eight appearance in 2001.

    Bibby is a former NBA player and the father of Sacramento Kings guard Mike Bibby.

    Garrett just got hit in the head a few too many times while he was playing. It was obvious that this coach needed to get canned a long time ago.
