ROCK HILL, SC (AP) -

Winthrop is looking for a new women's basketball coach.

Athletic director Tom Hickman said Eagles head coach Marlene Stollings told him she was leaving to accept the head coaching spot at VCU.

Stollings was named the Big South Conference coach of the year in her only season at Winthrop. She led the Eagles to an 18-13 record after coming in last season as an assistant coach at Mississippi.

Winthrop said VCU was expected to announce the move within the next few days.

Hickman said Winthrop would move quickly to name Stollings' replacement.
