Matt Insell leaving as Ole Miss coach after 12-19 campaign

OXFORD, Miss. -- Ole Miss' Matt Insell is out as women's basketball coach after five seasons with the program.

The school and Insell "mutually agreed to part ways," according to an announcement on the school's website Friday. Ole Miss lost to Missouri in the SEC tournament Thursday, ending a 12-19 season that included a 1-15 mark in league play.

Insell had a 70-87 record over his five seasons, including an 18-62 record in SEC play. The Rebels advanced to the WNIT in 2015 and 2017 but regressed this season, falling to last place in the SEC.

Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork thanked Insell in the statement and said that "we have a great foundation in place, and I know we can compete at the highest level."
