Pam Borton has been fired as coach of the Gophers women's basketball team.
Assistant coach Kelly Roysland was named interim head coach, Athletics Director Norwood Teague announced Friday.
Borton coached the Gophers for 12 seasons, including the 2004 Final Four run with Lindsay Whalen and Janel McCarville.
"I am grateful for my 12 seasons at the University of Minnesota. This is a great state and University, and I have enjoyed becoming a part of this community," Borton said in a statement posted on the team's website.
"I want to thank my players and staff over the years. We've accomplished a lot together and they have made the experience truly special. I want to give a special thanks to our current players and staff. They are a great group and I have enjoyed coaching and working with them every day."
