.500 career record is somewhat misleading

The four years prior to her taking over the RI program, WBB had a 29-89 record, going 3-27/8-21 in the two years immediately prior.

13-16 in her first year and 11-8 last year (don't know how she would have ended up with an additional 10 games) are a completely different trajectory from the prior arc of that program - and she is 4-0 so far this year and, although I can't judge the level of competition, her team is beating teams by an even bigger margin than our opponents are beating us.

Given UVa WBB, maybe we wouldn't look at her without the ties to UVa, but between her long coaching career and the results so far in her first HC gig, and especially given her ties to UVa, she's got to be close to the head of the line of take over. And given te current dumpster fire that anyone would be left with, her coming back may re-energize the program more than any candidate out there short of Dawn.
