Roundup Of McGuff Coverage
The University of Washington announced some exciting news Sunday afternoon with Xavier's Kevin McGuff leaving a highly successful program to become the ninth women's basketball coach in UW history.
During McGuff's tenure at Xavier, his teams reached the postseason in each of his nine seasons, including six NCAA Tournament appearances.
McGuff's move to Seattle created more than a few ripples both here and in Cincinnati. Here are a few of the best stories on the announcement.
First was the report from UW Director of Writing Gregg Bell, who had a chance to talk with McGuff and athletic director Scott Woodward prior to the announcement.
Jayda Evans from the Seattle Times notes that McGuff's teams want to have "an identity." He described his style as "physical and fast, with an emphasis on defense and rebounding."
Jayda has more on her blog about the commitment Woodward has made to building a top-notch women's basketball program at UW.
Here's the reaction from the Cincinnati.com, which notes that McGuff was impressed with Woodward's vision and the expanded footprint of the Pac-12 Conference.
