In a decision that seemed to be inevitable, Bev Smith's contract was not renewed for the 2009-10 season. Moseley is also reporting the story. A snippet from Pat Kilkenny.... "Bev is a wonderful person and is one of our greatest student-athletes of all-time, and this decision was not easy nor taken lightly. She always had the best interests of the University of Oregon first on her agenda, and always represented our university in a first-class manner. We wish coach Smith nothing but the best in the future, and thank her for her incredible efforts and dedication to Oregon, and all the of the student-athletes who have played for her. However, we have not had the success over time with our women’s basketball program that we now expect from all of our teams. While we remain patient with our programs, it is also important to recognize that our standards have evolved significantly upward over time. "
