Newly-hired Navy women’s basketball coach Tim Taylor eager to get going

With his impressive resume, high-level experience and nationwide contacts, Tim Taylor could easily have held out for a head coaching job at a Power 5 conference school.

Considering he spent a decade at North Carolina and Virginia, Taylor would have been an ideal candidate the next time an Atlantic Coast Conference program was hiring a women’s basketball coach.

Instead, Taylor accepted the head coaching job at the Naval Academy, which plays in the Patriot League. Athletic director Chet Gladchuk made the announcement Tuesday that Taylor would succeed Stefanie Pemper, who was dismissed March 10 after 12 years at the helm.
