Karen Barefoot To Coach UNCW WBB?
It appears that current ODU women's basketball coach and former Elon coach may be moving to UNCW to coach the women's team there.

Wow. All things considered that would be a very solid hire.

Just a question, and i don't mean it to be-rate our woman's hoops, but Wouldn't ODU be considered a better woman's job? Bigger conference, they have some history of being a woman's hoops powerhouse. Admittedly i don't follow it closely, but on the surface, that's what i see.

I read that CAA had a higher RPI than CUSA last year. Plus, Barefoot is in the last year of her contract at ODU and they decided not to give her an extension.

I just glanced at RPI, CUSA had some really bad bottom dwellers that pulled them down. Regardless if they did not re-new her contract, kudos to us jumping at the chance.

Doesn't matter really whether the CAA or CUSA is a better conference. This is a tough situation to walk into, so we're lucky to get someone of this caliber here.

That being said we DO spend $1.3M on Women's Bball (double what we spend on Baseball) so there's no reason or excuse for why we can't have success.

Another important hire for Jimmy Bass and, at least on first impression, he seems to have nailed it.

Not real excited about hiring a coach that was basically fired from ODU and not exactly a great resume overall. Retread hire is what it looks like.

Considering where we are, it's a good hire to get someone with a career winning record and experience.
