Wichita State women’s basketball coach Jody Adams withdrew her name from the coaching search at the University of Kansas on Sunday.
"I have decided to stay at Wichita State and continue our winning ways," Adams said in a released statement. "I have great respect for (Kansas), its storied basketball tradition and the remarkable individuals that continue to add to that tradition.
"Understandably, I was honored that (Kansas athletic director) Sheahon Zenger considered me ... I am extremely proud to be the head women's basketball coach at Wichita State University and I look forward to continuing my work with our own group of remarkable administrators, coaches, student-athletes and fans."
Former Emporia State coach Brandon Schneider is the front-runner for the Kansas job, according to the Lawrence Journal-World.
Adams interviewed for the position on Thursday and is one of three finalists, along with Arkansas-Little Rock coach Joe Foley. Schneider is coach at Stephen F. Austin. He spent 12 seasons at Emporia State and won the NCAA Division II title in 2010. He is 95-66 in five seasons at Stephen F. Austin with two Southland Conference titles.
Adams is 147-79 in seven seasons at WSU and led the Shockers to three straight NCAA Tournament appearances and Missouri Valley Conference regular-season and tournament titles.
