AUBURN--Terri Williams-Flournoy, who spent the previous eight seasons as the head coach at Georgetown, has been named the women's head basketball coach at Auburn, announced Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs Monday. Williams-Flournoy, who led the Hoyas to three-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances from 2010-12, becomes the sixth head coach in Auburn's history. Williams-Flournoy will be formally introduced as Auburn's head coach on Tuesday.

A 20-year coaching veteran, Williams-Flournoy led Georgetown to a four-year run from 2008-12, that was the most successful period in the program's history, while posting an overall mark of 143-104 during her eight-year tenure. In the last four seasons, the Hoyas were 93-41, advancing to the NCAA tournament in 2010, '11, and '12, while making a Sweet 16 appearance in 2011. They were a WNIT quarterfinalist in 2009.

"We are thrilled to welcome Terri Williams-Flourney into the Auburn Family," Jacobs said. "Coach Williams-Flourney has achieved success at every level of her basketball career as a player, assistant and head coach. She has an understanding of what it takes to be successful in the Southeastern Conference and brings a tremendous desire to win championships at Auburn. We welcome Terri, her husband Eric and two children to the Auburn family."

Prior to her arrival at Georgetown, she was a successful assistant for 12 years at Southwest Missouri State (2002-04), Georgia (1996-2002), and Georgetown (1992-96), posting a record of 251-116. During her 20-year coaching career, Williams-Flourney has been a part of three programs that have made 12 NCAA Tournament appearances, including five that advanced to the Sweet 16 or beyond. She was part of a Georgia program that advanced to the 1999 Final Four and Elite Eight in 1997 and 2000.

"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to lead the women's basketball program at Auburn," Williams-Flournoy said. "I'm very appreciative to President Jay Gogue, Jay Jacobs and Meredith Jenkins for giving me the chance to guide this team and I am looking forward to joining the Auburn family."
