Foster not returning at Ohio State after 11 years
Jim Foster, who won 783 games at Saint Joseph’s, Vanderbilt and
the last 11 years at Ohio State, will not return as women’s
basketball head coach next season, Ohio State has announced.
Foster, reached by phone, declined to offer any comment.
Ohio State did not specify if he had been fired or was retiring.
He compiled a record of 279-82 (.722) in his tenure with the
Buckeyes, departing as the program’s winningest coach in victories
This season his team went 18-13 and tied for eighth in the Big
Ten with a 7-9 mark. Passed over by the NCAA even though Ohio State
hosts NCAA first- and second-round games this weekend, the Buckeyes
declined to accept an offer to play in the WNIT.
