BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — Officials at Indiana University announced on Friday that head women’s basketball coach Curt Miller is resigning.

Miller will step down as head coach, effective immediately. This comes after he submitted a letter of resignation, which was accepted on Friday. The university says Miller will take until the end of the month to fully transition out of IU.

Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass met with Miller, the team, and staff Friday morning to talk about plans for the future. Glass said he will ask the new head coach to consider retaining the current assistant coaches, but added that will be his or her decision. Glass expects all other women’s basketball staff members to stay, a release said.

Associate head coach Curtis Lloyd will serve as interim head coach. The search for a new coach is already underway.

Miller took to Twitter Friday morning after the announcement:
