Daugherty dismissed as women's basketball coach after 11 seasons


Washington State University Director of Athletics Patrick Chun announced Tuesday that June Daugherty will not return as the women's basketball head coach for the 2018-19 season.

"Thank you to Coach June Daugherty for her years of service to Washington State University," said Chun. "We appreciate everything she has done for our student-athletes, women's basketball and this university."

The Cougars finished 10-20 this season, and Daugherty missed the end of the season because of health problems.

Daugherty, hired prior to the 2007-08 campaign, has guided the Cougars for the past 11 seasons, posting a combined 130-218 record, including three WNIT appearances.

A national search for WSU's next head coach will begin immediately.
