ORANGEBURG, SC— Claflin University Athletics Director Dr. Jerome Fitch announced Wednesday the resignation of head coaches Scott Monarch and Christopher Woods from the men’s basketball and men’s and women’s track programs, respectively.

Monarch, who was named head men’s basketball coach in May, has accepted a coaching position at the University of North Texas of Denton, Texas. Woods, who coached the men’s and women’s track programs last season, resigned to accept a position at his alma mater, Mississippi State University in Starkville, Miss.

“We regret their decision, but we will move forward in a very positive manner,” Fitch said. “Our student-athletes deserve our best and Claflin’s tradition of excellence demands our best, and that is what we will strive for.”

Fitch said Terrence Jenkins will serve as interim head coach of the men’s basketball team. Jenkins has been on the staff as an assistant coach since 2005.

Fitch will assume the daily operation of the men’s and women’s track teams until a new coach has been hired.
