Brother Rice fired coach Rick Harrigan on Friday.
The Crusaders, who went 26-32 in two seasons under Harrigan, were a 17-seed in the Class 4A Eisenhower sectional bracket this season. They defeated Reavis in the regional quarterfinals before being eliminated by St. Rita in a regional semifinal.
Harrigan said the reason for the split, from what he was told, was “philosophical differences.”
A 2002 Brother Rice graduate and a holder of several school basketball records, Harrigan took over for long-time coach Pat Richardson in 2013. Richardson went 433-232 in 24 seasons with the school.
