AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) – After a 5-19 (0-16 SEC) season, Auburn Director of Athletics Allen Greene announced Thursday afternoon that they will be letting go of head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy.

“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.”

This news comes after a 69-62 loss in the SEC Tournament to 12th seed Florida Gators. In nine years with the Tigers, Williams-Flournoy went 140-138 and had a 48-96 record in Southeastern Conference play. She also led Auburn to three NCAA Tournaments in 2016, 2017, and 2019.

“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.”

Auburn will begin a national search for a new head coach immediately.
