Georgia Tech fires Women’s Basketball Coach MaChelle Joseph

Georgia Tech has fired women’s basketball coach MaChelle Joseph nearly a month after she was placed on administrative leave.

The school has not issued a statement yet, but her attorney did release the following statement:

“Georgia Tech has been my home for the past 18 years, and the players and the staff have been my family.

I have so many great memories of the amazing journey we have been on with this program. I will be forever grateful for all of the young women who took a chance on Tech and on me. They have forever changed this program and my life.

I want to thank all of the Georgia Tech women’s basketball fans, supporters, alumni, and donors for your unwavering support and friendship.

Although this day came sooner than I expected, I am thankful that I had the opportunity to work with such a special team of great people and players. This is the most talented team we have ever had in women’s basketball at Georgia Tech – built from 3 top-25 recruiting classes in a row and 2 of the past 3 ACC Freshman of the Year recipients. This young, talented team is poised for an incredible run in 2019, and I am excited to watch them achieve greatness. 

Thank you to all my current and former athletes, coaches, and fans of the Georgia Tech women’s basketball program. I am forever grateful for the past 18 years with you.”
