Tho TBH, if I were coaching at a high-education-quality school in the hometown of the Ogwumikes, was it really that much of a stretch to land them as transfers?
Oh, kind of like Jody Wynn did? That didn’t work out too well as I recall...Come NW, If she can bring any kids from Texas to Wash, that’s a home run. Try to be a bit cheerful here!Yeah, on paper looks like a good hire. Proof is in the pudding, so we'll have to wait and see. She has her work cut out for her building that roster up to be competitive. Hopefully she hits the transfer portal effectively. @triaddukefan little jab certainly hits home, UW has had a number of HC bolt to move closer to home when they got the opportunity. Had about enough of that. I'm not sure if a coach bringing their entire staff with them is the norm. I would definitely prefer she add somebody with established recruiting ties on the West Coast.
Well according to some naysayers on this board maybe Geno should be in the hot seat. Can you imagine! We haven’t won a NC in 5 years. The program is in shambles..Don’t know when contracts end but coaches I would think are in danger:
Auburn (TFWs 9th yr)
maybe Fl (4th yr) but not sure he’s been there long enough
LSU is not terrible but is that the standard?
Vandy — White may get one more bc of COVID but things have not gone well
Wisconsin? (5th yr)
Illinois — Nancy Fahey (4th yr) experiment not working but they may give her more time
Wash — this is her 4th year
Wynn brought her entire staff with her. For the most part they continued to recruit Big West level players, as we saw that didn't cut it in the Pac 12. She had a player from Texas in her '21 class FWIW, that's never gonna be the life blood of recruiting for UW. You have to be able to recruit in California. Washington and Oregon produce some talent, but good luck keeping them close to home.Oh, kind of like Jody Wynn did?

Sounds like an opportunity for you to continue the Texas trend and move closer to @nwhoopfan and you can further bond together at Purple Huskies games...Pretty cool/weird that WSU with Kamie Ethridge and now UW with Langley have HCs who made their name (as either player or coach) in the Lone Star State.
I wonder if Stephanie asked about an extension and that’s what prompted the decision because you’re right, nothing new has come about since A) Vandy quit the season and B) all the other conference tournaments ended.
Back in early March, there was a poster on the Purdue board saying a Purdue coaching change was coming. But they weren't able to give more details. On March 13, they revealed they had heard that Stephanie White was coming to Purdue. Supposedly this had been confirmed by at least 3 sources "in the know". Obviously this was revealed after it was rumored that she was staying at Vanderbilt. Then 2 weeks later the Purdue coaching change for next year was announced. Odd timing all the way around.
