Burns out at Eastern


Dave Trimmer broke the news this morning that Eastern Washington University fired head basketball coach Mike Burns.

Burns has coached the Eagles for three years, posting a 38-49 record despite the presence for the past two years of Rodney Stuckey, one of the more talented players in Eastern history.

Dave has more on his blog.

I'll have more on Burns' firing in a little while.
