6. USC: Millinder out as Trojan women's coach
November 17th, 2006 5:22AM



Less than a week after his Women of Troy pulled one of the biggest upsets in NCAA Division I women's tournament history, Jim Millinder is out as USC head coach.

USC athletic director Mike Garrett announced Thursday that Millinder's contract was not renewed, ending his 11-year tenure with the Women of Troy.

"We appreciate all that Jim did to advance the women's soccer program during his tenure," said Garrett.  "However, at this time, we felt that a change was in the best interest of the program as we continue to strive to go to the next level."

Millinder, 47, compiled a 136-70-21 record at USC since taking over in 1996.  His teams made eight NCAA tournament appearances, but never advanced past the second round. The 2006 USC team was 11-5-5, placed fifth in the Pac-10 and lost in the NCAA second round to Stanford after upsetting No. 1 seed Santa Clara last Friday.
