Slice Appears on Way Out at Manhattan

Barry Rohrssen will coach Manhattan this weekend in the MAAC conference tournament in Bridgeport, but it appears his tenure at the school will come to an end after that.

“Barry’s our coach going into the MAAC tournament,” a university spokesman said.

Rohrssen did not return a voicemail seeking comment.

The Daily News reported Tuesday that Rohrssen was informed that day that he would not return.

In five seasons, he is 58-93 overall at Manhattan and 37-53 in conference.

10th-seeded Manhattan is 6-24 entering Friday’s MAAC tournament game against No. 7  Siena (12-17).

Rohrssen turned down an opportunity last spring to join Steve Lavin’s staff at St. John’s in order to remain at Manhattan.

Among those expected to be in the mix to replace him is Louisville assistant Steve Masiello, who was a former Manhattan assistant under Bobby Gonzalez.

Current Manhattan and former Seton Hall assistant Scott Adubato, who has strong recruiting ties in the New York/New Jersey area, has also applied for the Monmouth job.
