I was asked the other day How Many UCONN Alums are coaching in NCAA WBB? I had to admit I didn't know, BUT I am sure someone on the BY can tell me how many, who, and where they are coaching? Please share.

Here is a start. if you want you can dig out the details.
Looks like five active head coaches:
Carla Berube - head coach at Tufts; career record 367-95 .794 (Genoesque! OK, almost)
Tonya Cardoza
- head coach at Temple; 200–128 .610
Jennifer Rizzotti - head coach, George Washington University; career record 363–254 .588
Wendy Davis - head coach at Univ. of Saint Joseph; career record 242-183 .569
Marisa Moseley –head coach at Boston Univ.; career record 11-10 .524

This is old but gives a bigger picture. Some "facts" are wrong such as Berube started with Tufts in 2002. Dates are incomplete.
Marisa Moseley – (2018-19), head coach at Boston Univ.
Jennifer Rizzotti (1992-1996), a former UConn All-American is the head coach at Hartford. (George Washington)
Carla Berube (1993-1997) is the head coach at Tufts
Kristin Caruso (1986-1990) is the head coach at Longwood (crazy tenure: I believe she was for personal reasons suspended, reinstated, suspend, reinstated, dismissed, reinstated, dismissed, lost about 4-5 freshmen, two sophomores, and two asst. coaches, interpersonal relations may not have been a strong point
Wendy Davis (1988-1992) is the head coach at Trinity. Now at Univ. Saint Joseph
Stacy Hansmeyer (1996-2000) is an assistant coach at Oklahoma.
Tamika Williams-Raymond (1998-2002) is an assistant coach at Kansas.
Paige Sauer (1996-2000) is an assistant coach at Northern Colorado.
Morgan Valley (2000-2004) is an assistant coach at Towson.
Brittany Hunter (2005-2008) is an assistant coach at Temple under former UConn assistant Tonya Cardoza
So why no Tonya Cardoza?

Wrong St. Joe's.

Wendy Davis is head coach at the University of St. Joseph, a
D3 school in West Hartford. (where somebody named Calhoun is
the men's coach)
And she rubbed me the wrong way when they played my daughters team. Her teammate scored her 1000 point and she 1) went on a fast break instead of letting them celebrate and 2) gave them a hard time about giving her the game ball after the game. Bad taste in my mouth

They don’t normally stop a game to celebrate 1000 pts but not giving up the game ball if that is the normal procedure then I agree

GW's offense is bad. How bad? They average 50.7 ppg, which is 345th out of 349 D-I teams. :eek:

St. Joe's isn't much better: 53.9 ppg, which is 336th in D-I.
ANd yet people want Jen to take over for Geno when he retires, yikes!

Right now, I'd go CD if she wants it and if not, Shea.
I thought the conventional wisdom was CD and Geno exit stage left together so I am ok if the program goes to Shea (though if a more experienced coach without UConn came about, they should be given strong consideration) as she, Shea has shown herself to always adapt and overcome any obstacles and would have full support of past players, Alumni and the legions of fans.
