In Jan., Bailey was played on administrative leave. Curtis Janz, the school’s Athletic Director served as Interim Head Coach.
The school referred to the matter as a ‘personnel matter.’
“Justin Bailey, head men’s basketball coach at the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith, is no longer employed by the university. Because this is a personnel matter, the university is unable to provide further information.”
Janz coached the final games of the season. His final win with the team came in a 77-76 win over the Rogers State Hillcats on Jan. 30.
The team went 9-16 this season. They went 3-10 in conference play.
The Lions finished the season on a four-game losing streak.
Bailey last won a game with the team on Nov. 27 in an 83-75 win over Cameron Aggies.
Before being hired by UAFS, Bailey worked as an assistant coach with Lamar. He previously played for the Lions and also served time as an assistant coach at the school.
