After leading the women’s basketball program to back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since the 1980s, head coach Megan Duffy accepted a head coaching position at Marquette University, Miami Athletics announced this morning.
Under Duffy, the RedHawks finished 44-20 overall and 25-11 in Mid-American Conference play. The ’Hawks competed in the semifinals of the MAC Tournament and earned Women’s National Invitational Tournament bids.
Duffy was part of a historic turnaround for the women’s basketball program. Before Duffy, the RedHawks finished 12-21 and hadn’t played in the MAC semifinals in 10 years.
Last year, after amassing a 21-11 overall record, Duffy became one of four first-year head coaches to win 20-plus games, and she was the only woman.
