Air Force has fired women’s basketball coach Ardie McInelly, according to an academy news release.

The Falcons went 3-27 in the recently completed 2009-10 season, including 0-16 in Mountain West Conference play – their second consecutive winless league season. McInelly’s teams went 57-201 in her nine seasons, including 12-124 in MWC play. The women’s basketball program has lost 37 consecutive games to MWC opponents.

“We felt that now was the right time to go in another direction in our women’s basketball program,” Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh said. “Our primary mission at the academy is to build leaders of character for our Air Force, and we will look to find an individual to help us continue that mission. We wish Ardie well and thank her for her nine years of service to the academy.”
