Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond announced today that Head Coach Alison Foley has resigned from her position and will be leaving the Heights to pursue other opportunities. Foley recently finished her 22nd season at BC and holds the all-time record in wins with 280.
Despite falling to Hofstra in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Foley lead the Eagles to another successful season, amassing 10 straight victories to open the year and knocking off the eventual national champion in Florida State. The Eagles finished the season at 14-5-1 overall.
In her 22 year career, Foley lead the Eagles to 15 NCAA Tournaments, including eight Sweet 16s, three Elite Eights, and an appearance in the 2010 College Cup. She leaves BC with a career record of 280-145-39.
"It was an honor to coach so many terrific student-athletes during my tenure at Boston College,” Foley noted in a statement through BCEagles.com. “I am proud of what we have accomplished and I look forward to new opportunities in the future.”
A national head coaching search will begin immediately for Foley's replacement, and Sammy Boateng will serve as the interim head coach in the meantime.
