    I remember that name and the resume is above average. I'd be curious how different it is for her to recruit out West.

    She has long been rumored to be the "head coach in waiting" for Connecticut if and when Geno Aurriema retires and has turned down other offers to leave the state of Connecticut. That said, I think she would be an interesting possibility if she indeed has any interest in moving to a more difficult league at this time.
