Alabama fires Smith after three seasons
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama women's basketball coach Stephany Smith was fired Tuesday after the Crimson Tide finished 1-14 in the Southeastern Conference.
In three seasons, Smith was 27-61 overall and 4-41 in the SEC.
"I appreciate her efforts, as well as those of her staff," Alabama athletic director Mal Moore said. "However, I feel it is best that the program move forward under new leadership in order to compete consistently at the very highest level."
Before coming to Alabama, Smith was 153-88 at Middle Tennessee.
