Vol State Releases Women’s Basketball Coach

Vol State logoDue to a rules violation of the National Junior College Athletic Association, Chris Harris, the Coach of the Volunteer State Community College Women’s Basketball Team, has been released under the terms of his contract. The release came last Wednesday. Coach Harris is no longer teaching or coaching at the college. The investigation has been completed and we are wrapping things up. We’ll have more to say soon. This is not a criminal matter- it is an NJCAA rules investigation. It is not anticipated that anyone else is involved or that any other action will be taken by the college. Chris has been a successful coach at Vol State, but considering the circumstances this in the best interest of the college.  The basketball season for the women’s team will move forward as planned. An interim coach will be named soon. Clearly it will be tough for the players. It is for all of us. The College will pull together and support the Lady Pioneers in every way possible.
