DAYTON – University of Dayton Vice President and Director of Athletics Neil Sullivan announced that Shauna Green, head coach of the Dayton women’s basketball program, has resigned after six years to take the same position at the University of Illinois.

“On behalf of the University of Dayton, I offer our gratitude and sincere thanks to Shauna for a great six-year run,” said Sullivan.  “Most importantly, Shauna represented the University with integrity and class.  She graduated student-athletes, won championships and embraced the community.  With our thanks for her service and best wishes for her continued success, we commence our search for a new coach who will continue our strong tradition of women’s basketball.” 

An extensive national search for the position has begun.

The Dayton women’s basketball program has been the premier leader in the Atlantic 10 Conference over the past decade with seven conference championships and 15 straight postseason appearances.

The Flyers won the A-10 regular season title this past season and earned an at-large berth in the 2022 NCAA Division I tournament. Dayton won its first NCAA game since 2015 in a win over DePaul in the first ever women’s First Four. UD has gone 127-50 over the past six seasons.
