Utah State will not renew the contract of Jeff Richards as head women's gymnastics coach. A national search to replace Richards will begin immediately.

"We appreciate Jeff's efforts while at Utah State," USU athletic director Scott Barnes said. "We will immediately move forward for a new head coach with Dr. Brian Evans, USU Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Services, serving as the chair of the search committee."

In five seasons, Richards, who is one of just two coaches in the program's 36-year history, compiled an 18-85 overall record, including a 2-25 mark in the Western Athletic Conference.

In 2010, Utah State placed third at the WAC Championships, which was its best conference finish in Richards' five years at the helm.
