Coquese Washington is Here to Stay

It has been a few nervous days for the Penn State Women’s Basketball program. Everyone can now exhale. After receiving permission from acting athletic director David Joyner to interview for the Michigan job last week, head coach Coquese Washington made it official at a 3 pm press conference from the Bryce Jordan Center that she will remain with the Lady Lion program. “Penn State and Coquese are going to have a long history together,” said Joyner.

The Flint, Michigan native just completed her sixth season at Penn State, whose record and standing in the Big Ten has improved each season:

2007: (13-18, 4-14)  10th

2008 (11-18, 6-12) T-7th

2009: (17-14, 8-10) T-6th

2010: (25-10, 11-5) 2nd

2011: (24-6, 13-3) 1st

The 2011 team is coming off an appearance in the Sweet Sixteen and returns almost all of its major contributors next season.

No details of an extension were provided today, but it is likely that one comes soon with Washington currently signed through the 2014 season. “I love it here at Penn State,” said Washington.
