An Exciting Opportunity

I have some big news. I have agreed to be the new women's basketball head coach at the University of San Francisco!

I'm very excited about this new opportunity in my career. I am thrilled to have the chance to work with young women. I believe sports provide a foundation for success in life.

I'm scheduled for a press conference in a couple of hours, so I'll be sure to post more details. Thanks to everyone for all of your support!

As a women's basketball fan, I'm glad you've decided to join the coaching ranks - young women need your guidance. As a USF alum and Stanford fan, I'm even happier :)

I'll be in War Memorial cheering you on and I wish you the best with this new opportunity.

NCAA Women's Basketball @ USF Steps Up
Congratulations USF. Hiring Jennifer Azzi, one of the sweetest shot-makers the game has ever seen, as your women's head basketball coach was a stroke of brilliance. She, in turn, acted alike by hiring Katy Steding, one of the game's sweetest rebounders and her former Stanford/Olympic teammate, as her assistant coach. It may be lost on the rest of the world, but USF, your women's basketball program just took a gigantic step up toward respectability. Congratulations indeed!

Hey Coach Jennifer,

Not sure if you remember me. We met and chatted writing on papers at the USOC cafeteria during your Olympic Tryouts in Women's Basketball and my internship. Congratulations on your coaching endeavor at USF. Hope to hear from you.
