Florida Southern women’s basketball coach Betsy Harris steps down


A three-time Sunshine State Conference Coach of the Year has stepped down.

Florida Southern head women’s basketball coach Betsy Harris announced that she is stepping down to take a head coaching job at East Central Community College in Decatur, Mississippi, a school that is located right across the street from her mother’s house and will give her the opportunity to help take care of her family.

Replacing Harris as interim head coach will be assistant coach Megan Dzikas, who has been on Harris’ staff the past three seasons. At the conclusion of the 2022-23 season, there will be a national search for that head coaching position.

“I just appreciate the opportunity they gave me, Harris said. “Pete Meyer was the AD who hired me and I’m very appreciative of him and Dr. (Anne B.) Kerr for believing in me and sticking with me, just staying true to me and loyal to me.
