Coming off a 7-23, 2-14 ACC season, Boston College women's basketball coach Sylvia Crawley has resigned for "health reasons."

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

Nice things were said by DeFilippo.

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

Crawley was 67-63 (20-38 ACC) in four seasons with the Eagles, but suffered through a particular dreadful final season. BC managed just two ACC wins and were non-competitive in blowout losses to the upper half of the ACC.

Crawley took over for Cathy Inglese, who resigned after leading Boston College to seven 20+ win seasons in her last eight years on the Heights. Crawley brought the Eagles to the WNIT twice, but failed to make the NCAAs in each of her four seasons at BC.

Assistant coach Tim Eatman will serve as interim coach until a replacement is hired.
