Richards fired after 12 seasons

BG women's soccer coach Andy Richards has been fired after 12 seasons at the helm of the program, the University announced in a statement.

Assistant coach Kellie Evans will serve as interim head coach for the 2012 season. A national search for a permanent head coach will begin in November.

“We would like to thank Andy for his years of service and contributions to BGSU women’s soccer,” BG director of athletics Greg Christopher said in a statement. “That being said, it is in the best interest of the program that we move in another direction.”

In 12 seasons at Bowling Green, Richards was 108-121-27 overall and 58-62-16 in MAC play. His teams won the MAC Tournament in 2004 and 2005, along with a regular season title in 2005.

However, the women's soccer team has struggled of late. BG hasn't posted a winning season since a 12-6-4 record in 2008, and had only six wins this past season.
