The Huskies have decided to release women’s basketball coach June Daugherty.
Here is the release from the university:
The University of Washington has decided not to renew the contract of head women’s basketball coach June Daugherty and her staff and will immediately conduct a national search for her replacement, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Todd Turner announced today.
The contracts of Daugherty and the women’s basketball coaching staff, which consists of her husband, Mike, as well as Janet Soderberg and Kellie Lewis-Jay, expire on March 31. Turner and Sr. Associate Athletic Director Marie Tuite have begun the process to conduct a national search for a new coach to lead the Washington program.
In her 11 seasons as the head women’s basketball coach at Washington, Daugherty compiled a 191-139 (.579) overall record and a 113-85 (.571) mark in Pacific-10 Conference play. She guided the Huskies to six NCAA Tournament appearances, including yesterday’s 79-60 loss to Iowa State in the event’s first round in Minneapolis, Minn. Prior to coming to Washington, Daugherty coached seven seasons at Boise State and has compiled a career record of 314-213 (.596) in 18 total seasons.
