WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed issued the following statement after Head Women's Basketball Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy was named the head coach at Auburn University.
"I would like to thank Terri for her many contributions to Georgetown Athletics and to the Georgetown community. Over the course of the past eight seasons, Terri has elevated Georgetown women's basketball to unprecedented heights. Along with President DeGioia and our athletics staff, I thank Terri for her dedicated service to Georgetown and we wish her and her family our very best. She did a remarkable job during her tenure and she will definitely be missed on the Hilltop.
"Finding a new leader for our program is the top priority. We are looking for someone who will embrace the high standards of academic and competitive excellence that defines Georgetown Athletics and Georgetown University.
"Our program has been to the NCAA Tournament the last three years and to the postseason the last four, and with a new training facility for both the men's and women's basketball programs on the horizon, we expect our success in women's basketball to continue."
The Hoyas finished the 2011-12 season with a 23-9 overall record, earned a double bye in the BIG EAST Tournament with a fourth place finish at 11-5 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
