Lady Vols fire head coach Kellie Harper after five seasons







Tennessee parted ways with coach Kellie Harper on Monday after five seasons, opting to make a change to try and reinvigorate a program that has not played for a national championship since the late Pat Summitt retired.

Harper, who played under Summitt, could never quite get the program back to an elite level. Though she won 20 or more games four times, Tennessee never advanced past the Sweet 16.

"After a thorough review of our women's basketball program, I have informed Kellie we are making a change in leadership," Tennessee athletics director Danny White said in a statement.
