SALEM, Va. -

Susan Dunagan, who has the most wins as a basketball coach in the history of Virginia, announced her retirement Thursday as the Roanoke College women’s basketball coach.

Dunagan had a record of 611-271 in her 33-year career with the Maroons. She led Roanoke College to 13 Old Dominion Athletic Conference championships and 11 NCAA Tournament appearances.

"Although I am retiring from basketball, the student-athletes that I have coached will always be a part of my family," Dunagan wrote in a news release. "I've been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with quality people in every area of Roanoke College and have made great friends in the Roanoke Valley. I realize this move will allow new energy into our basketball program to work with a first-class team building toward Roanoke's 14th ODAC Championship and 12th NCAA Tournament appearance."

Dunagan is a Roanoke Valley native. She spent 11 years at Cave Spring High School teaching health, physical education, and driver’s education. She holds degrees from Radford University.
