semifinal berth this spring, was informed his contract would not be renewed in a brief meeting with athletic director David Currey on Monday morning.

Wood follows in the footsteps of Jason Lamb, the long-time coach of Brigham Young with national championships to his credit, who was terminated at this time last spring.

“I did my job and I did it well,” said Wood on Thursday. “We won a lot of games. I’m going to miss the players and 99 percent of the people at Chapman.”

This past spring, Chapman finished 16-3 again. For the third time in as many years, the three-time champion Wolverines bounced the Panthers in the tournament, this time in the semifinals.

In his brief stint at Chapman, Wood posted an overall record of 55-8, and an MCLA mark of 50-7.

Wood attributes his firing to his often contentious relationship with Currey, who hired the former Pomona women’s lacrosse and football coach in 2007.
