Indiana athletic director Fred Glass has announced that Felisha Legette-Jack is no longer the university’s women’s basketball coach and a search for her successor is under way.
“After a deliberate and thorough review of all aspects of the women’s basketball program, including meeting with Felisha and interviews with all current players, I have concluded that under the current circumstances Felisha is no longer in a position to turn the program around,” Glass said in a news release. “Delaying the inevitable isn’t fair to her, the program and its fans, and most importantly the student-athletes on this team.
“Felisha is a wonderful person who did many good things for our program, the University and the wider community. We all wish her much success in her future endeavors.”
Legette-Jack has been the Hoosiers’ coach for six seasons, posting a winning record and postseason berths in each of the first three but has suffered through three consecutive losing seasons.
Glass gave Legette-Jack a two-year contract extension last summer, putting her under contract with the university through the 2014-15 season. By releasing her, the university owes her a cumulative $780,000 for those three years.
“I am mindful that just last year I provided Felisha a two-year contract extension in the belief that such support would help her get the program going in the right direction again,” Glass said in the release. “In retrospect, I was wrong. However, I am not going to compound that mistake by refusing to make the decision that now needs to be made.”
