Keith Tucker is out after 26 years as the men's head coach at Howard University, one of the great names in the history of men's college soccer.

Tucker's current contract will not be renewed for the 2007 season after the Bison went 3-13-1 overall and 0-6-0 in the Atlantic Soccer Conference last fall. Tucker's overall record at the Washington, D.C., school is 182-175-47, but the Bison has a combined 24-60-10 record the past six years.

Tucker, a former Howard player, succeeded Lincoln Phillips, who led Howard to national championships in 1971 and 1974. Howard's best season under Tucker came in 1988 when the Bison finished second to Indiana with freshman Shaka Hislop in goal. The next year Howard reached the quarterfinals. Its last NCAA appearance came in 1997.

According to Steven Goff of the Washington Post in his new Soccer Insider blog, among those rumored to be possible candidates to replace Tucker are Hislop and former U.S. internationals Philip Gyau and Jimmy Banks. Gyau also played at Howard.
