Jay McAuley resigns as head coach at Wofford
Jay McAuley has stepped down as the head men’s basketball coach at Wofford, the school said on Friday. The Terriers have been led for the last few weeks by interim head coach Dwight Perry, who took over on December 5 when it was announced that McAuley was taking a leave of absence.
“Wofford basketball is thankful for his service and leadership, and we wish he and his family well in future endeavors,” read a statement from the University.
McAuley was elevated to head coach in 2019 after two years as associate head coach under Mike Young. He also coached at the school nearly a decade earlier as one of Young‘s assistants (2008-10). He finishes with a 58-42 overall record and was over .500 in all three full seasons for which he was at the helm.
The Terriers are currently 8-6 (0-1) and will host UNC Greensboro tomorrow for their second SoCon game of the season.
