Washington hires Jody Wynn as women’s basketball head coach

By Kayla Lombardo Apr 14, 2017

The University of Washington has hired Jody Wynn to be its women’s basketball program’s new head coach, the university announced Friday.

Wynn, who will replace the Arkansas-bound Mike Neighbors, spent the last eight seasons at Long Beach State, where she led the 49ers to three straight 20-win campaigns and an NCAA tournament appearance.

“I am thrilled to welcome Jody and her family to the University of Washington,” UW athletic director Jennifer Cohen said in a release. “She has built a culture of excellence at Long Beach State which has inspired championship values and achieved results.

“She possesses a fierce competitive nature and always operates with the utmost integrity. I believe her skillset and experiences are the perfect fit to capitalize on the momentum our program has built and lead us into the future.”

[Wynn will take over a Huskies squad that will be without Kelsey Plum, the top pick in the 2017 WNBA draft, in 2018. Plum set the NCAA all-time scoring record this season and helped lead Washington to the Final Four in 2016.
