GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida women's basketball coach Cam Newbauer stepped down Friday for "personal reasons," the school announced, a surprising move that came six weeks after he signed a three-year contract extension.

Newbauer, hired from Belmont in March 2017, failed to turn around the school's only sport to never win a conference championship.

The 43-year-old Indiana native was 46-71 overall and 15-47 in Southeastern Conference play, including three three-win seasons in four years. Newbauer had four years remaining on a deal that paid him $500,000 annually.
