Buchanan served six years on the Panthers staff with five as an assistant under former head coach Brady Sallee and the last year as the head coach guiding EIU to a 20-12 record that included an OVC regular season co-championship and WNIT appearance.

EIU Athletic Director Barbara Burke said in a statement, “I want to thank Coach Buchanan for his six years of service to the women’s basketball program here at Eastern Illinois, including serving as the head coach this past season. I wish the Buchanan family all the best in their future endeavors.”

The school says a national search for Buchanan’s replacement will begin immediately.
