    CARBONDALE, Ill.- Southern Illinois University Director of Athletics Mario Moccia announced on Monday the resignation of Saluki head women's basketball coach Missy Tiber.

    Assistant coach Adrianne Harlow will serve as the team's interim coach for the remainder of the season. Harlow has been an assistant under Tiber for the past 12 seasons at SIU, Tusculum College, and Belmont Abbey College.

    Midway through Tiber's fourth year at the helm, the Salukis are 4-12 overall and 1-4 in the Missouri Valley Conference. Tiber ends her tenure at Southern with a 19-86 overall record (.181), including a 9-50 mark (.153) in MVC play. Prior to SIU, Tiber compiled a 167-70 record (.705) in eight seasons as a head coach at Tusculum (2005-09) and Belmont Abbey (2001-05).

    "I met with Coach Tiber this morning, and she expressed her disappointment that the team has not met expectations this season," Moccia said. "After much soul-searching, she determined it was best to part ways with the program. We accept her decision and appreciate her service to the University."

    Four coaches have led the women's basketball program since the retirement of Saluki Hall of Famer Cindy Scott in 1998, and each left with a winning percentage below .400. SIU has won just one conference championship in the last 23 seasons and has finished better than seventh in the MVC only once since the 1996 season.

    "Missy inherited a struggling program, and unfortunately, was unable to turn the tide," Moccia said. "I am confident, however, that we can and will reverse the course of our women's basketball program."

    Moccia said a search for Tiber's replacement will begin immediately.
