Clemson has cut ties with women’s volleyball coach Michaela Franklin, the team undercut by a steady stream of departures and transfers.

Clemson said the school and coach had “mutually agreed” to part ways.

Franklin had one more season left on her contract.

The school’s athletic director said Thursday he told players the move came “after looking at all areas of the program.” Franklin went 49-68 over four seasons with the Tigers.

At least 27 players left before their eligibility was up, including eight who chose to opt-out of the program when the 2020-21 season resumed this year after a break because of the pandemic.
