After months of silence, finally this from the University of Virginia on Joanne Boyle and her new staff. It almost seems like they’re trying to compensate for the absence of information by making this piece a little long.
I object to the use of the term “rebuilding” to describe the UVa program. They’ve been to the Tournament as recently as 2009, and produced Monica Wright. One could argue that they needed a boost, but not a full rebuild.
Rumors have circulated that former longtime coach Debbie Ryan was pushed out. Others speculated that Boyle left Cal because her mojo was running out there, and her coaching abilities were questioned.
I don’t know about any of that, but I’ll be interested to watch Virginia this year.
