Opp compiled 23-85 record with Salukis
CARBONDALE, Illinois -- Southern Illinois dismissed women's basketball coach Lori Opp on Tuesday.
Opp had a dreadful 23-85 record, including an 11-61 mark in Missouri Valley Conference games, in four years at the school.
"This was a tough decision to make because I like and respect Lori so much," said Salukis director of athletics Paul Kowalczyk. "But we needed to see more progress from the program."
A search will begin immediately for Opp's replacement.
