Milestones and records[edit]

Conference membership changes[edit]

The 2012–13 season saw the second wave of membership changes resulting from a major realignment of NCAA Division I conferences. The cycle began in 2010 with the Big Ten and the then-Pac-10 publicly announcing their intentions to expand. The fallout from these conferences' moves later affected a majority of D-I conferences.

In addition, two schools moved from Division II starting this season. These schools are ineligible for NCAA-sponsored postseason play until completing their D-I transitions in 2016. Finally, one school that had announced a transition to Division II, New Orleans, announced that it would halt its transition and remain in Division I.

Major rule changes[edit]

  • Coaches could work their teams for a maximum of two hours a week beginning September 15 until official practice begins on October 13.[31]
  • There is now unlimited contact, including text messaging, allowed between college coaches and a prospective player in high school and junior college recruiting.[32]

Conference winners and tournaments[edit]

Thirty athletic conferences each end their regular seasons with a single-elimination tournament. The teams in each conference that win their regular season title are given the number one seed in each tournament. The winners of these tournaments receive automatic invitations to the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. The Ivy League does not have a conference tournament, instead giving their automatic invitation to their regular season champion. As of 2013, the Great West Conference does not have an automatic bid to the NCAA Men or Women's College Tournament but the men's tourney champion does receive an automatic bid to the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament.

Reason
Ball State Billy Taylor James Whitford Taylor was fired following 15–15 records in each of his last two seasons.[102]
Buffalo Reggie Witherspoon Bobby Hurley Witherspoon was fired after 14 seasons.[103]
Butler Brad Stevens Brandon Miller Stevens left to become the newest head coach of the National Basketball Association's Boston Celtics.[104]
Cal State Northridge Bobby Braswell Reggie Theus Braswell was fired after 17 seasons, ending with a 14–17 season. Although he led the Matadors to two NCAA tournaments and three 20-win seasons, his tenure was also marked by numerous off-court problems. Ironically, incoming Northridge athletic director Brandon Martin, who announced Braswell's firing, played under him in high school.[105] Northridge went to the D-League to hire Theus, who is also a former coach of New Mexico State and the Sacramento Kings, and played 13 seasons in the NBA.[106]
Campbell Robbie Laing Kevin McGeehan Campbell went 13-20 and finished tied for third in the league's North Division with a 7-9 conference record.[107]
Connecticut Jim Calhoun Kevin Ollie Calhoun retired on September 13. He won 873 games in 40 years as a head coach, first at Northeastern and the last 26 years at UConn, where he put four teams in the Final Four, winning national titles in 1999, 2004 and 2011.[108]
FIU Richard Pitino Anthony Evans Pitino, son of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino, took the Minnesota job.[109]
Florida Gulf Coast Andy Enfield Joe Dooley Enfield guided the Eagles to the school's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in only its second year of Division I eligibility, then advanced to the Sweet 16 as a #15-seed – the first time in tournament history that a 15-seed had gotten so far. The University of Southern California lured Enfield away on April 1.[110]
Longwood Mike Gillian Jayson Gee Gillian guided the Lancers through their transition from Division II to Division I play, and into their first season as a member of the Big South Conference. He resigned on March 14, 2013, after the Lancers' first season with less than ten wins since 2008.[111] On April 3, Cleveland State associate head coach Jayson Gee was hired. [112]
Loyola (Maryland) Jimmy Patsos G. G. Smith
Minnesota Tubby Smith Richard Pitino Smith was fired after six seasons at Minnesota and having compiled a 124-81 record. The Golden Gophers never finished higher than sixth in the Big Ten Conference, however.[113]
New Mexico Steve Alford Craig Neal Alford left to take the UCLA job.[114]
Norfolk State Anthony Evans Robert Jones Evans took the FIU job; he had been a finalist for that job the previous offseason, but had lost out to the now-departed Richard Pitino.[115]
Northwestern Bill Carmody Chris Collins Carmody was fired after failing to lead Northwestern to its first ever NCAA tournament bid in thirteen seasons.[116] He was replaced by Duke assistant Collins, the son of former NBA player and coach Doug Collins. Collins took over after the Blue Devils exited the NCAA tournament.[117]
Old Dominion Blaine Taylor Jim Corrigan Jeff Jones Old Dominion fired Taylor, their all-time winningest coach, on February 5 after a 2–20 start.[118]
Rutgers Mike Rice Eddie Jordan Rice was fired on April 3 after ESPN's Outside the Lines aired a video taken at a Rutgers practice that showed Rice shoving and throwing balls at players and using gay slurs.[119] Jordan, a player on the school's 1976 Final Four team and most recently an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers, was hired as Rice's replacement.[120]
Saint Louis Rick Majerus Jim Crews Majerus stepped down prior to the season due to health reasons and later died. Interim coach Crews led Saint Louis to an Atlantic 10 regular season title and was named conference coach of the year.[121] Saint Louis removed the interim tag from Crews on April 12.[122]
San Jose State George Nessman Dave Wojcik San Jose State was looking to upgrade the program before its move to the more strenuous Mountain West Conference next season.[123] Boise State associate head coach Dave Wojcik was hired as Nessman's successor on March 30.[124]
Siena Mitch Buonaguro Jimmy Patsos According to ESPN.com, "Buonaguro went 35-59 in three seasons with the Saints, never finishing a season with a winning record or in the top half of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. The three-year slide immediately followed the most successful three-year run in school history. Siena won MAAC titles in 2008, 2009 and 2010 -- all under coach Fran McCaffery, with Buonaguro his top assistant."[125]
South Alabama Ronnie Arrow Jeff Price Matthew Graves Arrow retired December 19, 2012. Jeff Price was named interim head coach. Butler associate head coach Matt Graves was named the new head coach of South Alabama on March 25, 2013.
South Carolina State Tim Carter Murray Garvin Carter resigned in season on February 6, 2013 after starting 4–17.[126]
South Dakota Dave Boots Joey James Boots resigned in August, 2013.[127]
Texas Tech Billy Gillispie Chris Walker Tubby Smith The Red Raiders were 8–23 overall, 1–17 in the Big 12, in Gillispie's lone season as successor to Pat Knight. Gillispie's tenure in Lubbock began to unravel in September 2012 when CBSSports.com and ESPN.com, citing several former players, reported the coach regularly violated NCAA practice-time rules and mistreated players to the point of causing injury[128]
UCLA Ben Howland Steve Alford According to the Orange County Register, "...the perfect storm of attendance, reputation, and very little NCAA Tournament success was enough to doom Howland after 10 seasons."[129]
UMBC Randy Monroe Aki Thomas Monroe resigned as head men’s basketball coach on October 10. He led UMBC to its lone America East Conference title and NCAA Tournament appearance in the 2007–08 season. Monroe directed the third-most games (245) of any head coach in UMBC men’s basketball history and finished with a career mark of 85–160.[130] On March 4, Aki Thomas' interim tag was removed and he was promoted to permanent head coach.
UMKC Matt Brown Kareem Richardson Brown was fired on March 12, 2013. He went 64–122 with UMKC, including an 8-24 record in 2012–13.[131] He was replaced by Louisville assistant Richardson, who took over after the Cardinals won the NCAA title.[132]
USC Kevin O'Neill Bob Cantu Andy Enfield O'Neill was fired on January 14, 2013. USC athletic director Pat Haden cited "new energy" was needed for their program.[133] On April 1, USC announced that they had hired Andy Enfield, the head coach who just taken Florida Gulf Coast University to the Sweet 16 as a #15-seed, the first time in NCAA Tournament history that has occurred.[110]
