EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon won't renew the contract of women's basketball coach Paul Westhead when it expires at the end of the month.

The school made the announcement Tuesday.

Westhead signed a five-year contract in 2009, and it runs out March 31. He told his players before practice Tuesday. The team will head to the Pac-12 tournament in Seattle on Thursday to play Washington State.

The Ducks (15-14) lead the nation in scoring, averaging 93.3 points per game in Westhead's up-tempo system. He is 65-90 in his five years at the school, including going 27-64 in the conference.

Before coaching at Oregon, Westhead spent time in the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury as well as a successful stint with the Loyola Marymount men's basketball team.
