NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Vanderbilt Athletic Director Candice Lee announced the university has parted ways with its women’s basketball coach Stephanie White.

White compiled a 46-83 record in her five years with the program.

In an official release, Lee said this of White: “I want to thank Stephanie for her efforts over these past five years,” Lee said. “While we did not experience the results that we all hoped for, she held our student-athletes to high standards. She supported our student-athletes’ commitment to community service and welcomed alumni back to the program.

“I also want to thank Stephanie, her staff and our student-athletes for navigating the challenges of the past year. As I continued my evaluation of the program, I ultimately concluded that change is needed at this time. I wish Stephanie and her family the best.”

The university says a national search for the next head coach will begin immediately.
