Contract Not Renewed for Terri Deike

TYLER, Texas -- The University of Texas at Tyler has chosen not to renew the contract of head women's basketball coach and associate athletic director Terri Deike.

"We thank Coach Deike for her dedication and service to UT Tyler, the athletics department, and the women's basketball program," said UT Tyler Athletic Director James Vilade. "Coach Deike played a major role in helping UT Tyler move toward NCAA membership and she was involved in many other facets of the athletics department."

Assistant Coach Cassi Little will assume the women's basketball coaching duties on an interim basis and a national search for a new head coach will begin immediately.  Deike will continue in her role as associate athletics director until August 31st.

Deike was UT Tyler's first women's basketball coach and had a 90-61 record over six seasons. Her teams won three ASC East Division Championship and appeared in the American Southwest Conference tournament twice.

    With the smallest enrollment in District 17-5A, and really across the entire classification, Lindale could use that as an excuse for a sub-par season. But under defensive coordinator, turned head coach Chris Cochran, that won't be the case.
