Connecticut Sun head coach Anne Donovan has resigned, per the team.

"It’s not easy walking away from a team that I put my heart and soul into, but I think it is in my best interest to move on at this time," Donovan said. "I will miss the ladies and the passion of the Sun fans. I was proud to serve as their head coach."

Introduced as the head coach of the Sun on January 3, 2013, Donovan was a combined 38-64 in three seasons. In the final year of her contract, which expires in October, Donovan led the Sun to a 15-19 mark.

"We are grateful to Anne for her efforts here over the past three seasons, and respect her decision to step down," Sun Vice President and General Manager Chris Sienko said. "The search for our next head coach will begin immediately."

Along with being in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, Donovan was recently inducted into the Fiba Hall of Fame.
