Lawrence, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Kansas fired head women's basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson on Monday.

Kansas finished the season at 15-17 after losing to rival Kansas State in the opening round of the Big 12 Conference Tournament on Friday.

The Jayhawks reached the NCAA Tournament twice (2012 and 2013), both times advancing to the Sweet 16, during Henrickson's 11 seasons as coach. Kansas also earned berths in five National Invitation Tournaments, reaching the championship game in 2009.

Athletic director Sheahon Zenger said in a statement that assistant coach Katie O'Connor will serve as interim coach. A national search for a full-time replacement was already underway.
