With the firing of football head coach Jeff Quinn Monday, Athletic Director Danny White has changed eight coaches since arriving in Buffalo in May 2012.
White has acted swiftly with coaching changes, regardless of a coach?s tenure or contract situation, when a program didn?t perform up the standards of his movement to make Buffalo ?America?s next big-time athletic brand.?
White?s hires have been a combination of young coaches who were some of the most elite athletes as players and experienced head coaches who had success at other universities.
Predecessor: Linda Hill-MacDonald (75-137, 35-77 MAC)
White?s hire: Felisha Legette-Jack (29-33, 18-16 MAC)
White?s first head-coaching hire was Felisha Legette-Jack after UB Athletics announced they would not renew the contract of seven-year head coach Linda Hill-MacDonald May 30, 2012 ? three days before White took office as Buffalo?s A.D.
Legette-Jack starred Syracuse women?s basketball team before coaching Hofstra and Indiana to four combined WNIT appearances. read more >>
