Mike Bozeman not returning as GW women's hoops coach

George Washington University announced Monday that Mike Bozeman has been released as the head coach of the women's basketball program.

The Colonials (11-18) concluded their season with a 69-55 loss to Duquesne in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Championship on Friday.

"I am disappointed that I will not have the opportunity to return as coach here at GW, but I am thankful to all that worked hard these past four years, especially our student-athletes and assistant coaches," said Bozeman, who compiled a 42-75 record, including a 19-37 mark in conference play, during his tenure.

Bozeman was named head coach on June 24, 2008 after serving as an assistant.

"We want to thank Mike for his four years as head coach and three seasons as an assistant coach with our women's basketball program," said director of athletics and recreation Patrick Nero. "He worked very hard to bring the success to our women's basketball program that we all hoped could be achieved. We wish him the best as we look forward to the future for GW women's basketball."
