Washington to Coach Team USA in Kazan, Russia

After coaching the Lady Lions for six seasons and grabbing two back-to-back regular season Big Ten titles, Penn State Women’s Basketball head coach Coquese Washington has accepted her first Team USA coaching position.

Washington will serve as an assistant coach for the USA Women’s Basketball Team set to compete at the World University Games on July 8th through the 15th in Kazan, Russia. Team USA’s coaching staff will also include Oklahoma’s head coach Sherri Coale and Marist assistant coach Brian Giorgis.

Despite never having coached for a USA national team before, Washington was a part of the USA Basketball Women’s Junior National Team Committee in 2009 until 2012.

Along with her Big Ten distinctions and 25-5 record so far in 2013, Washington’s Lady Lions have remained Top 10 in the polls all season.

The World University Games tournament will include host team Russia, USA, Australia, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Japan, Mongolia, Poland, Sweden, Taiwan and Ukraine. Team USA has won eight gold medals, six silver medals and one bronze medal in its endeavors at the World University Games.
