Aprile had been with the Panthers for 15 seasons, the last 10 as head coach.
“I’ve had the honor to work with some of the most amazing student-athletes during my time at Pitt, especially during this past season,” Aprile said in a news release. “I was truly blessed to be around one of the best groups of young women that I have ever had the honor of coaching and am extremely proud of them and their accomplishments. I know they will continue to lead this program to great heights.”
Pitt Athletic Director Heather Lyke said the university would begin a national search for Aprile’s replacement.
