Vanderbilt women's basketball coach Jim Foster is leaving to become head coach of the women's basketball team at Ohio State University. OSU will officially introduce their new coach at a press conference at 11:30 CT Sunday.
A local television station reported Saturday night that his entire staff would be leaving with him, but details are not yet available.
Foster just completed his 11th season at Vanderbilt, compiling a 246-99 record including 10 NCAA appearances with 8 trips to the Sweet 16. In explaining his reason for leaving, Foster said in a released statement, "Life is a series of challenges and opportunities and my decision to leave is based upon accepting another challenge."
The search for a new coach will begin immediately.
