Oregon lacrosse coach Katrina Dowd has resigned after two seasons, the school announced Friday.
Dowd was hired in 2016 after four years as an assistant coach at North Carolina, where she helped the Tar Heels win a pair of national championships. The Ducks were 18-17 in her two seasons, finishing fourth in the the six-team Pac-12 in 2017-18.
No reason was given for her departure.
"I am grateful for the opportunity to be the head coach at Oregon, and I have certainly had a great experience," Dowd said in a release from the school. "I enjoyed working with our tremendous group of student-athletes, and leaving them is a very difficult decision. At this time, I am interested in pursuing other opportunities, but I will always have great memories from my time at Oregon."
Dowd is the fourth head coach of a women's sport to leave Oregon in recent weeks. Softball coach Mike White left to become the head coach at Texas, women's golf coach Ria Scott left for Virginia, and women's tennis coach Alison Silverio left for Notre Dame.
