After six seasons at the helm of the Boston College Women’s Basketball program, Erik Johnson has announced his resignation.

The resignation comes following a dismal 7-23 season for the program, including a 2-14 record in conference.

Prior to arriving at the Heights, Johnson was the head coach of the University of Denver women’s basketball team.

“Erik has put his heart and soul into leading our women’s basketball program and we appreciate his years of service,” BC athletic director Martin Jarmond said in a press release from the athletic department. “We wish him and his family the best in all of their future endeavors.”

During Johnson’s tenure, the program advanced to the second round of the ACC tournament twice and upset the Duke Blue Devils on Jan. 22, 2015.

However, the program has been on a steady decline. The Eagles have not reach a double digit win total in two years.

“Boston College has been a special place to be associated with and I am thankful for the opportunity to coach at The Heights,” Johnson said in the release.

Johnson’s tenure at the Heights ends with a 68-115 record overall.

Yvonne Hawkins will serve as interim head coach for the program.
