FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Purdue Fort Wayne will not renew the contract of women’s basketball coach Niecee Nelson.
Athletic Director Kelley Hartley Hutton made the announcement Friday. She said in a statement the decision was based on the team’s “competitive performance over Nelson’s time as head coach.”
The Mastodons went 1-22 this season. Nelson has a 22-116 overall record and 8-74 record in league play over five seasons.
A national search for Nelson’s replacement will begin immediately, Hartley Hutton said.
