A person familiar with the decision says Texas women’s basketball coach Gail Goestenkors is resigning after four seasons of not making it past the first round of the NCAA tournament.
The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the school had not announced the decision. The school scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon.
Goestenkors is in the fifth year of a seven-year contract that pays her $1.25 million per year.
Texas finished 18-14 this season and was 8-10 in the Big 12. The Longhorns barely made the tournament this season as an at-large selection and lost to West Virginia in the first round.
Texas hasn’t advanced past the first round since 2008, Goestenkors’ first season. Her last day is Friday.
