BREAKING: Edgar Farmer Resigns as Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Wofford

Wofford College women’s basketball head coach Edgar I. Farmer, Jr. announced today that he has resigned his post. Farmer served as head coach of the Terriers for twelve seasons.

“I would like to thank Richard Johnson and the rest of the administration, including Mark Line, Terri Lewitt, Elizabeth Rabb, and Dr. Nayef Samhat for giving me this opportunity,” said Farmer. “I have cherished coming to work every day for the past fourteen years. Wofford will always hold a special place in my heart.”

“In his twelve years as head coach, Edgar took over a program that was in disarray and brought it stability,” said Wofford College athletic director Richard Johnson. “He is a man of integrity and character and we appreciate all he has done for the athletic department and Wofford College. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Farmer joined the Wofford women’s basketball staff for the 2002-03 season, spending two years as an assistant coach before being hired as the head coach on July 20, 2004. In his 12 seasons as head coach, Farmer has helped revitalize a program that went 0-28 the year before he was hired. Many Terriers entered the Wofford record books and earned Southern Conference athletic and academic accolades under Farmer’s watch. In two of the last five seasons, Wofford earned a first-round victory at the Southern Conference Tournament.

Wofford will begin a search for a replacement immediately.
