    PROVIDENCE, R.I —  St. John’s fired head coach Norm Roberts late Thursday night after six seasons at the Queens school and will immediately begin a national search for his successor.

    “We’ve come to the decision that Norm will not be retained as our head coach for next season and we will start immediately with a national search to take over as his successor,” St.  John’s athletic director Chris Monasch said Friday morning in a conference call.

    Monasch will run the process himself and will not use a search firm or a committee. Hofstra coach Tom Pecora, Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg, Louisville coach Rick Pitino, Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt and former St. John’s standout Mark Jackson are among the possible candidates.
