There actually is some truth to the health situation. However, as with pretty much everything, there is more to the story.

Is there enough talent for three pacific northwest teams to be good? I just feel like with Plum and Osahor leaving, and with Oregon and Oregon State's success, it will be a hard rebuild for Washington. The Pac 12 strength to me is not a selling point because it makes it harder to rise to the middle of the pack. The SEC on the other hand seems more top heavy but there are a lot more potential wins for a coach early in their career.

UW is in Seattle, one of the best/if not best big city markets for women's sports. Not to mention a first rate education to offer.

Seattle vs Eugene & Corvallis is not a contest from what a city has to offer standpoint.

Oregon St has remained very, very good and the Ducks look to be strong for the next 3 years but the culture at UW right now will not allow any program to be an afterthought.

I think UW can recruit from the entire West Coast, and even Utah, Colorado and Arizona because of the Pac-12 network and the potential home games.

UW has a good academic reputation, is located in a beautiful city and has shown a commitment to athletic success. I think it has advantages over many teams in the conference, and in the long run, could be a very good women's basketball program. In the short run, granted, it's not going to be pretty but the wheel can turn pretty quickly ...

I wonder if the academic programs offered at Lafayette might be a challenge for recruiting. Business, Education, Physical Therapy and Nursing are some of the hottest majors right now and from what I saw a few of those aren't offered.

Thoughts?

Good for her. But I think she's been a very good sidekick/balance to Graves for several years so it'll be interesting to see who he brings in now.

The timing is interesting, unless they hire someone really quickly they won't have anyone out on the road recruiting for the two weekends this April where coaches can watch AAU teams play. Puts any new coach behind the 8 ball immediately.

Kind of a no-surprise to those of us in the CAA, although as Durantula says, the timing is interesting. UNCW has been in the basement for a few years now.

Wow!

And "Wow" on the Nicole Powell move. I think she could have positioned herself for a much better head coaching job if she hung around Oregon for a few more seasons. She was also the FIRST name that popped in my mind to vill the immediate assistant coaching void at her alum Stanford now that Tucker is gone.

Will be interesting to see what direction Vanderveer and staff go. Hope they bring a young coach on or an alum.

I like the hire.

Extensive west coast experience, built LBSU over time and had a big band in some of the highly ranked classes Trakh signed at SC.

Jody and Derek Wynn have been West Coast fixtures for a while -- Jody Anton was also a star at Brea-Olinda, leading the Ladycats (hate that name) to three straight state titles.

She paid her dues at Long Beach State, going 8-23 in her second year, but winning more games each season until last year's 24-9.

Expect, however, a similarly slow rise at Washington, which, though it is a great long-term job, will have to start over after losing the heart and soul of this year's team -- and Mike Neighbors' heavy reliance on his seniors, which led to limited development for those who will return next year. (The graduated seniors took 63% of the shots, for example ...)

Good luck to Coach Wynn next season.

I wonder what's going to happen with the assistants, though.

OTOH, I saw that her husband, Derek Wynn, was her assistant at Long Beach State. I guess Derek is going to join her as a part of her staff at UW also.
