UMass to seek new women's hoops coach

Amherst, MA (Sports Network) - The University of Massachusetts is in the market for a new women's basketball coach after the school decided not to retain Marnie Dacko for next season.

Dacko's contract is set to expire April 10.

"We want to thank Marnie for all of her contributions to the program and the University of Massachusetts," said UMass athletic director John McCutcheon. "We feel there has not been the competitive progress that we have been looking for and that a change was necessary. We will be initiating a national search immediately. The announcement of the members of the consultative committee will be released shortly."

Dacko spent the past eight seasons with the Minutewomen and posted a record of 98-135. This year's squad finished 11-19 overall and 5-9 in the Atlantic 10.
