First reported by Molly Yanity of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times Wednesday morning, Jackson is the second basketball coach to leave Duke in two days. Goestenkors announced to her team Tuesday night that she would be leaving Durham for the head coaching position at Texas.
Jackson is no stranger to the west coast, having already coached at Stanford and UCLA. She played her college basketball under current Rutgers Head Coach C. Vivian Stringer at Iowa, helping the Hawkeyes to a 27-4 record and berth in the 1993 Final Four, earning NCAA Mideast Regional All-Tournament honors as a junior.
HERE is Jackson's Duke biography. Jackson is also known for her recruiting prowess, acting as UCLA's recruiting coordinator for five years under current Bruins Head Coach Kathy Olivier. Holding together Washington's current class will certainly be one of Jackson's top priorities, one that is ranked as a top-12 class by Scout.com.
HERE is the list of Scout.com's top-100 prospects for the 2007 class, a list that includes three current UW signees - Kali Bennett, Sarah Morton and Candice Nichols.
