Walz Will Have Many Suitors

by Categorized: 2013 Big East Tournament, Jeff Walz, Louisville women's basketball Date:

Jeff Walz has taken two Louisville teams to the Final Four in his six seasons and now he’s expected to be one of the most sought-after coaches in game this offseason. Ohio State, already turned down by Auriemma, Dawn Staley and Gail Goestenkors, is expected to top the list of suitors.

“Coach is a great guy on and off the court,” Louisville sophomore Sara Hammond said. “ And off the court?? well, on the court as well?? he’s always just making sure that we’re having a good time.  He cracks jokes with every one of us and makes sure we have smiles on our faces.  And he does go above and beyond to make sure that we need everything necessary off the court and on the court.  And he’s there to make us not only better players but better people and prepare us for life.”

Meanwhile, Walz believes there is now reason to believe UConn won’t remain a national power for years to come.

“Right now, no.  I mean, Breanna Stewart is a freshman, so we’re dealing with her for three more years.  And then again, what I like about them is he’s not one to stockpile kids.  It’s not 15 deep with 15 McDonald’s All?Americans.  He’s going to get three or four each year, and then he builds players that go around his system.”
