IU women's basketball coach fired

Felisha Legette-Jack is out as the women's basketball coach at Indiana, athletic director Fred Glass announced in a news release Monday.

"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 statement. "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 had an 87-100 record in six years at Indiana. The Hoosiers went 6-24 this season, 1-15 in the Big Ten.

"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 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."
