McInerney Resigns 

Officially Ann McInerney has resigned her position as women’s basketball coach at Umaine.

McInerney was introduced as the University of Maine’s women’s basketball coach in May of 2005, after a 6 years at Merrimack College. She became the ninth head coach in Maine women’s basketball history.

&quot:I want to thank Ann for her efforts on behalf of UMaine, its athletics department and our student-athletes,&quot: says Blake James, UMaine’s director of athletics. &quot:Ann is a talented coach and I wish her the best in future endeavors.&quot:

&quot:I appreciate the University of Maine giving me the opportunity to coach here the last two years,&quot: McInerney says. &quot:I wish nothing but the best for my players and their futures.&quot:

In her two seasons at Umaine the Black Bears did not have a winning record going 10-19 a year ago and 13-15 this past season. That’s the first time in more than 30 years that the program has had back to back losing seasons.
