I have made the decision not to renew Coach Travis Mays’ contract,” Hart said in a prepared statement. “During his tenure, our program made strides in several key areas; however, at the end of the day, the on-court record of our teams did not reach the level of success we hoped for our program. We are grateful to Coach Mays for his commitment to SMU women’s basketball and we wish him and his family the very best.
