Navy hires Tim Taylor as women’s basketball coach

Naval Academy athletic director Chet Gladchuk announced Tuesday the hiring of former University of North Carolina and Virginia assistant Tim Taylor as women’s basketball coach.

Taylor, who has spent 12 years as an assistant coach in the Division I ranks, replaces Stefanie Pemper, who spent 12 seasons at the helm and became the school’s all-time winningest coach but was fired March 9 after back-to-back losing campaigns.

“Support within the basketball community for coach Taylor’s candidacy to lead our women’s program was as positive and enthusiastic as I can recall on behalf of any applicant for a position within the NAAA,” Gladchuk said in the release.
