Charlotte AD Judy Rose hires Mark Price a little more than two years ago, and then fires him nine games into his third season. Rose also hired Alan Major in 2011.

Another NBA to college flop.

A quick and unmitigated flop. Lasted less than 2 1/2 years.

Gary Parrish did more than just tweet. Posted both an article and discussed on his podcast.

Price is the second straight Charlotte coach to accomplish little.

Bobby Lutz took the 49ers to five NCAA Tournaments in 12 years but was fired in March 2010 after missing the event in five consecutive seasons. Charlotte replaced him with Alan Major, who went 67-70 in five seasons. Price then replaced Major. And now the school will hire Price's replacement, presumably in March, in an attempt to return this program -- a program that used to regularly compete near the top of its league with Louisville, Cincinnati, Memphis and Marquette -- to relevance.

The 49ers have not made the NCAA Tournament since 2005.
