Nelson’s contract not Renewed by Purdue Fort Wayne

Athletic Director Kelley Hartley Hutton announced Friday (Feb. 26) that Purdue Fort Wayne Athletics will not renew the contract of head women’s basketball coach Niecee Nelson. 
In five seasons, Nelson coached the Mastodons to an overall record of 22-116 and 8-74 in league play.
“This decision is based on the team’s competitive performance over Nelson’s time as head coach,” Hartley Hutton said.
Under Nelson’s leadership, the team’s grade point average improved dramatically—from a 2.63 to a 3.43 for the fall 2020 semester. Nelson was the third coach for the Mastodon women’s basketball program in the NCAA Division I era (2001-present).

A national search will begin immediately to identify Nelson’s successor.
