Rick Ray is out after three losing seasons at Mississippi State.
Ray had a 37-60 record over three seasons, including a 15-44 mark against Southeastern Conference competition.
Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin said in the statement that firing Ray was a "difficult decision, but progress on the court has not been satisfactory."
The Bulldogs were 13-19 this season, which included a 6-12 mark in the SEC.
