On Thursday, Auburn athletic director Allen Greene announced that Auburn women's basketball head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy will no longer serve as the program's head coach.
"This year was full of unexpected challenges. Coach Flo, her staff and our student-athletes should be commended for their attitude and effort in the face of disruption and adversity," Greene said. "Our women's basketball program under Coach Flo's leadership consistently represented Auburn with class on and off the court, and we are grateful for her nine years of dedicated service to our student-athletes and the Auburn Family. We wish her the very best in her future endeavors."
After eight seasons as the head coach at Georgetown, Williams-Flournoy replaced Nell Fortner at Auburn in 2012. During her tenure at Auburn, she appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times, most recently in 2019.
She coached the Tigers for nine seasons and finished with an overall record of 140-138 and was 48-96 in the SEC. During the 2020-21 season, the Tigers finished with a 5-19 record and an 0-15 record in SEC play.
"I am grateful for the opportunity to have served Auburn University and the women's basketball program for the past nine seasons," Williams-Flournoy said. "It was a great honor and privilege and an experience I will cherish. I will forever be appreciative of our staff and student-athletes during our tenure and the way each represented Auburn with class and dignity. As a change in leadership was determined, I would like to thank President Gogue and Allen Greene for their trust in my leadership over my time here. Auburn will always hold a special place in my heart."
A national search for the program's next head coach is underway.
