Jay Wright is reportedly calling it a career.

According to multiple reports, the Villanova Wildcats coach, who won two national championships, has decided to retire.

Wright, 60, is reportedly stepping down.

"JayWright is retiring at Villanova… the latest in a massive changing of the guard in college basketball. Many coaches expected Wright to help lead the profession with Coach K, Roy retiring. Instead, Jay’s joining them," Kevin Sweeney of Sports Illustrated wrote.

Perhaps Wright is choosing to spend more time with family.

Wright is married to his longtime wife, Patricia.

Jay and his wife met in 1983. Patricia was a cheerleader at Villanova, while the now-former head coach played college basketball at Bucknell.

The couple has three children together, living outside of Philadelphia.

Jay will now have more time to spend with family and friends.
