Back in June, Quentin Hillsman was being investigated for allegations of inappropriate behavior, threats, and bullying. The Syracuse head coach officially stepped down from his position with the women’s basketball program.

John Wildhack, the athletic director, stated the following on Hillsman leaving:

“Coach Hillsman and I agreed that parting ways is in the best interest of the University, the program and our student-athletes. We wish him and his family all the best. Interim leadership for the Women’s Basketball Program will be announced in the coming days. As previously announced, the University retained an external law firm to conduct a review of the program. That review is ongoing, and the Department of Athletics will address issues that are identified at the conclusion of the review.”

Hillsman was hired in 2006 by the Orange. During his tenure there, he made nine NCAA tournament appearances which include playing in the 2016 National Championship game. Overall, Hillsman had a 319-169 record at Syracuse.
