Lance White out as Pittsburgh women's basketball coach

Lance White is out as head coach of the Pittsburgh Panthers women's basketball team, the school announced Friday.

White had just concluded his fifth season, compiling a 42-99 record. The move comes two days after the 15-seed Panthers (10-20) fell in the first round of the ACC tournament to 10-seed Clemson.

"Coach White has been wholeheartedly dedicated to the betterment of his student-athletes and women's basketball at Pitt," athletic director Heather Lyke said in a statement. "I'm extremely grateful for his efforts and wish him only the very best moving forward, both personally and professionally."

Pitt was White's first head-coaching job after stints at Texas Tech and Florida State.

Pitt last appeared in the NCAA tournament in 2015 under then-head coach Suzie McConnell-Serio. That is also the last time the Panthers finished a season with a winning record.

The program has only had three other appearances in the NCAA tournament: 2007, 2008 and 2009.
