Ohio State Fires Women’s Basketball Coach Jim Foster
Ohio State University has fired womenâ€™s basketball coach Jim Foster.
Fosterâ€™s dismissal came after the team had a losing record in the Big Ten Conference and failed to qualify for the NCAA tournament.
Foster coached OSU women for 11 seasons, and was the winningest coach in the programâ€™s history in terms of winning percentage and total wins.
His record was 279 wins and 82 losses.
OSU Athletics Director Gene Smith called Foster a wonderful representative of the university who provided exceptional mentoring to young people on and off the court. “The Ohio State women’s basketball program was made better under Jim’s leadership,” said Smith in a statement.
A national search for Fosterâ€™s replacement is underway.
