UC Irvine to Begin Search for New Women's Basketball Head Coach

 

IRVINE, Calif. --- UC Irvine is launching a nationwide search to select a new head coach for its women's basketball program, effective immediately, announced Athletic Director Michael Izzi.

Izzi said that the university declined to renew the contract of Molly Goodenbour, who has served as UCI's head coach the last four years.

"We appreciate Molly's contributions over the past four seasons, but I believe this is the right time to transition our program to new coaching leadership," Izzi said.

Goodenbour was 44-76 overall, including 26-38 in Big West Conference play, as the Anteaters' head coach.
