Terry Dozier is out as Westwood boys basketball coach after four seasons.
Dozier was the first coach in school history when it began in 2012. He had .500 or above record in three of the four seasons and made the postseason in 2014-15 before losing to James Island in the first round. His career record is 46-46.
This year, the Redhawks went 11-11 and finished fifth in Region 4-4A.
“Their reason was administrative – it came down to mistakes being made on paperwork,” Dozier said. “This was my fourth year as a high school coach and every year I feel I got better. It was explained to me some of the mistakes over the years, including this year. I feel a lot of it was just an excuse to get me out of there.”
Before taking over at Westwood, Dozier was a standout at South Carolina from 1985-89. He averaged 13.9 points during his career for the Gamecocks and finished with 1,445 points.
After college, the Baltimore, Md., native played 12 years overseas and in the NBA, including time with the Charlotte Hornets.
This is the second coaching departure for the Redhawks. Westwood football coach Rodney Summers is leaving the school to become the football coach at May River High in Bluffton.
