Jackson

Tia Jackson is out as coach at Washington after four lackluster seasons where she failed to turn around a lagging program.

Jackson announced her resignation on Monday after meeting with athletic director Scott Woodward.

In her first head coaching job, Jackson was hired by former athletic director Todd Turner in 2007 hoping to add what Turner called a ``spark'' to the program after former coach June Daugherty was fired.

Instead, Washington went 45-75 overall in her four seasons and also saw massive roster turnover during her time in Seattle. Jackson's teams never won more than 13 games in any of her four seasons that also featured some of the worst losses in program history.

Washington went 13-18 this past season and lost in the Pac-10 Conference tournament quarterfinals to California.
