Coaching Carousel: Maine's Ted Woodward Bought Out

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Maine has finally decided to move on from head coach Ted Woodward as the school bought out the remainder of his contract today.

After ten seasons as the head coach of the Maine Black Bears Ted Woodward has had the remaining 13 months and $113,800 of his contract bought out. In a release from the school Director of Athletics Karlton Creech said:

"I would like to thank Ted for his service to the University of Maine, the last 18 years as both a head coach and an assistant. Ted's commitment to  the University of Maine and its student-athletes — both athletically and academically — have been the trademark of his tenure here."

Woodward has been in Orono since 1998 when he began being an assistant for the Black Bears. He spent time at Central Connecticut, Hartford, and UConn before as an assistant.

The Black Bears were 6-23 this past year and four players have already decided to transfer this year leading scorer Xavier Pollard. The Black Bears' 2013 leading scorer Justin Edwards also left for Kansas State last offseason. Woodward finishes his stint with a 117-177 record in Orono. Woodward had just one winning season in ten years and never finished higher than third in the America East.
