The Steve Wojciechowski era of Marquette Golden Eagles basketball has come to an end.

The school announced Friday that it was parting ways with Wojciechowski, who coached Marquette for the past seven seasons. Marquette Athletic Director Bill Scholl released a statement on Friday that can be found below.

“After a thorough evaluation of our program over the last week, which included multiple conversations with Steve, I concluded that now is the right time for a new leader of our storied program,” said Scholl. “I’m confident that our history of success and our commitment to developing young men who are leaders on and off the court will attract the highest caliber of coaching talent. I want to thank Steve for his dedication to our student-athletes, and for how he represented our men’s basketball program and the university. We wish Steve, Lindsay, Jack and Charlie nothing but the best in the future.”

In his seven seasons at Marquette, Wojciechowski amassed a 125-98 record, but went just 59-68 in Big East play and 0-2 in two NCAA Tournament appearances.
