Chestnut Hill, MA -
Sylvia Crawley has resigned her position as head women's basketball coach at Boston College for health reasons.
"I am putting my coaching career on hold to deal with a non-life-threatening, treatable condition," Crawley said. "I am grateful to Boston College for the opportunity to coach here. I wish the very best for the current and future student-athletes in the program."
"Sylvia is one of the best people I've had the opportunity to work with," Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo said. "I would like to thank her for her hard work and contributions to Boston College basketball."
In four seasons with the Eagles, Crawley compiled an overall record of 67-63 (20-38 in the ACC). The Eagles finished the 2011-12 campaign with a 7-23 overall record.
Assistant coach Tim Eatman will serve as interim head coach until a permanent successor is hired.
