Wayland Baptist Flying Queens basketball coach Will Flemons will not return for a fifth season after it was decided not to renew his contract, according to WBU Director of Athletics Greg Feris.
"Everyone at Wayland is appreciative of the effort and energy that Coach Flemons brought to the campus and to the Flying Queens program," says Feris. "All of us have benefited from working with him and we wish him well in all future endeavors."
The Queens were 53-65 under Flemons. During his first season at Wayland, the team was 18-11 and received a bid to the NAIA National Championship Tournament. The 2004-05 Queens went 14-14, but a rash of injuries to key players and prolonged shooting slumps resulted in back-to-back losing records the past two seasons.
While at Wayland, Flemons coached one All-American and four All-American Scholar Athletes. The team won the 1,400th game in Flying Queens history during the 2005-06 season, and set a new NAIA free throw record against the University of Texas-Permian Basin this past November.
Flemons will remain on campus as a faculty member through the end of his current contract which expires June 30.
