Badgers fire women's head basketball coach Bobbie Kelsey after five seasons

Madison, WI (WKOW) - -

The University of Wisconsin announced Friday that women's head coach Bobbie Kelsey will not be retained. 

Kelsey arrived at Wisconsin in 2011 with high promise but she never quite reached that potential. Since the 2011-2012 season, the Badgers went 47-100, 19-65 in Big Ten play, never finishing higher than 9th place in conference standings. 

The Badgers finished the 2015-2016 regular season 7-21 overall, 3-15 in the Big Ten, good enough for 13th place. 

UW Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez announced a national search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
