FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Trent Johnson has been fired as TCU's basketball coach after a 12-21 season.

TCU announced the decision Monday, four days after the season. Johnson coached TCU through its first four seasons in the Big 12 Conference.

Johnson was 50-79 overall with the Horned Frogs, and only 8-64 in regular-season conference games. Those Big 12 losses were by an average of more than 15 points.

After opening the Big 12 Tournament last week with a 67-62 win over NCAA Tournament team Texas Tech, the Frogs lost 86-66 to West Virginia on Thursday.

Before TCU, Johnson had taken LSU, Stanford and Nevada to the NCAA Tournament. His best record with the Horned Frogs was 18-15 last season.
