Clemson’s McKinney resigns from basketball post

Cristy McKinney has resigned as coach of the Clemson women’s
basketball team.

In a statement released by the school on Wednesday, McKinney
says a change was needed for both her and the university after her
five years running the program.

She had a 13-18 record this year and a 58-93 record at Clemson
over all.

Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips says he appreciated
McKinney’s work and dedication to the school. He says a coaching
search will begin immediately.

Clemson ended its season last week with a 54-59 loss at North
Carolina State.
