Tracee Wells Out as Tennessee State Women’s Basketball Coach
Tennessee State University yesterday announced the firing of head women’s basketball coach Tracee Wells.
Wells spent eight seasons at the helm of Tennessee State’s women’s basketball program finishing with a 77-157 overall record and a 55-103 mark in Ohio Valley Conference play.
The Lady Tigers finished the 2011-12 season 9-20 overall and 5-11 in conference action. TSU fell 70-55 to Eastern Kentucky in the first round of the OVC Tournament last Wednesday.
“We are grateful for Tracee’s dedication and truly appreciate what she has done for our student-athletes and the University,” said Phillips. “However, we feel it’s time to go in a new direction for the women’s basketball program.”
The TSU alumna broke a 14-year losing season streak for the Lady Tigers in 2009, and was the Ohio Valley Coach of the Year the season prior with a 10-10 record in conference play.
