Ferraro out as Waynesburg basketball coach

Frank Ferraro, head men's basketball coach at Waynesburg University, will not return for another season.

The school did not announce the decision or mention if Ferraro was fired or had resigned. A source confirmed Friday that Ferraro will not be returning. On Waynesburg's Web site, the job of head men's basketball coach is listed among the school's job openings.

Ferraro replaced Waynesburg atheltic director Rudy Marisa as the Yellow Jackets' head coach prior to the 2003-04 season. He guided Waynesburg to a 16-11 record and spot in the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament championship game in 2006. Since then, the Yellow Jackets' record has slipped each season.

After being picked as the preseason favorite in the PAC for the 2006-07 season, Waynesburg stumbled to a 12-13 record and lost its first game in the PAC tournament.

Over the last three seasons, Waynesburg has gone 8-17, 6-19 and 2-22. With only one senior on the roster this year, the Yellow Jackets went 0-12 in PAC play and lost its last 11 games overall. The 22 losses are a school single-season record.

Prior to arriving at Waynesburg as an assistant in 2001, Ferraro was head coach at Moon (1998-2001), Burgettstown (1983-98) and South Fayette (1979-82). He coached Burgettstown to three consecutive section titles.

At Waynesburg, Ferraro had a 63-116 record.
