DES MOINES, Iowa -- Drake women's basketball coach Amy Stephens has resigned after nine seasons with the Bulldogs.

Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield Clubb announced the resignation Monday.

Stephens says in a statement that she and the school had different visions for the future of the program, which prompted her resignation.

The Bulldogs finished 18-16 last season, losing to South Dakota in the first round of the WNIT.

Stephens was 151-130 at Drake. She previously spent eight seasons as the head coach at Nebraska-Kearney.
