DURHAM, NC (AP) — Joanne P. McCallie won’t return for a 14th season as Duke’s women’s basketball coach.
McCallie announced her departure in a 6-minute video posted on the program’s Twitter account.
She said she was “choosing to step away” as coach, saying she wanted to bring “clarity” instead of uncertainty as she entered the final year of her contract.
“Hello from Coach P. I hope you all are safe and healthy during these very challenging times.
I just had a very difficult conversation with a group of women that I love and adore and admire…” pic.twitter.com/5pN2Swdfau
