Bob Sunvold is very surprised to be unemployed. UMKC athletic director Bob Thomas fired Sunvold from his post as UMKC’s basketball coach Tuesday. Sunvold says he thought the ‘Roos were on the right path. UMKC won 16 games last season, the first winning record for the school since 1992. The team has ten of its top 12 players returning in the fall. Sunvold had been at UMKC for four years after coaching Central Missouri State, and serving as an assistant at Mizzou and Southwest Missouri State.
