Kellie Harper will not return to Tennessee as head coach

Tennessee announced a change in leadership for the women’s basketball program on Monday.

Vice chancellor and director of athletics Danny White discussed the change in leadership.

“After a thorough review of our women’s basketball program, I have informed Kellie we are making a change in leadership,” White said. “Decisions like these are never easy to make, especially with someone who has done so much for the Lady Vols as a three-time national champion student-athlete. Her love and passion for Tennessee and the Lady Vols is second to none. She has invested so much heart and soul into our program and truly has given her all for Tennessee. I thank Kellie for her stewardship of our women’s basketball program and wish her and Jon well in the next chapter of their lives.”
