Two weeks after the Boston College women’s basketball team ended the season 7-23, Sylvia Crawley resigned from her position as head coach. Crawley cited health reasons in her decision to leave her post.

“I am putting my coaching career on hold to deal with a non-life-threatening, treatable condition,” Crawley said in a statement.  “I am grateful to Boston College for the opportunity to coach here. I wish the very best for the current and future student-athletes in the program.”

Throughout her four years at BC, Crawley’s teams went just 67-63, including a 20-38 record in the ACC.

“Sylvia is one of the best people I’ve had the opportunity to work with,” Athletic Director Gene DeFilippo said. “I would like to thank her for her hard work and contributions to Boston College basketball.”

In the four years that Crawley served as head coach, the Eagles never qualified for the NCAA Tournament. Instead, BC was selected to play in the women’s NIT three times, though Crawley declined the bid in 2010.

According to BC, assistant coach Tim Eatman will serve as the interim head coach until a new head coach is hired.
