WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State University is replacing women’s basketball coach Jody Adams-Birch in what it called an amicable parting.
A news release issued Sunday did not say whether Adams-Birch was fired or resigned.
Former Shockers women’s coach Linda Hargrove will lead the team for the rest of this season before a national search for a replacement begins.
The university removed Adams-Birch from the team Thursday without any public explanation.
Two players have left the team this season. In 2015, four players transferred and Adams-Birch was accused of being mentally and physically abusive. After an investigation, she kept her job with some program changes.
She compiled a record of 161-115. Three Shocker teams went to the NCAA Tournament and Wichita State won three Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championships and three postseason tournament championships.
