WKU Fires Coach Cowles

Mar 8, 2012

After ten years as head coach of the WKU womens' basketball team and 21 years with the program as player and coach, Mary Taylor Cowles has been fired. Athletics Director Ross Bjork says he informed Cowles of her termination Thursday morning.

"Moving forward, we must restore confidence, public support and the energy back to our basketball program," Bjork said, "Everyone associated with Lady Topper basketball understands the expectations are to compete for and win championships and our program has much to offer the game of womens' basketball." The search for a new head coach for the Lady Toppers will begin immediately.
