Women's basketball coach Stephanie Gaitley leaving Fordham Rams

NEW YORK -- Fordham women's basketball coach Stephanie Gaitley is leaving her job, the school announced on Thursday night.

Gaitley took over the program in 2011 and in her 11 years at the school became the program's winningest coach. She had nine postseason berths and won two Atlantic-10 championships.

She has coached for 36 years and is 684-393 in her career, having previously coached at Monmouth, LIU Brooklyn, Saint Joseph's and Richmond. Gaitley was 220-123 at Fordham, including going 18-11 this past season. She led the Rams to the NCAA tournament in 2014 and 2019.

Fordham athletic director Ed Kull will appoint an interim head coach with the July recruiting period starting in a few days.
