Auburn Director of Athletics Allen Greene announced a leadership change for the Auburn women’s basketball program last Thursday as Terri Williams-Flournoy will no longer lead the program.

In nine years, Williams-Flournoy compiled a 140-138 record including a 48-96 mark in Southeastern Conference play. Williams-Flournoy led Auburn to NCAA Tournament appearances three times in 2016, 2017 and 2019.

“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.”

“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.”

 A national search for her replacement will begin immediately.
