Chattanooga tabs Foster as next women's basketball coach

The Sports NetworkMay 9, 2013 

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga announced on Thursday that the school has hired Jim Foster as the next women's basketball head coach.

Foster, a longtime women's college basketball coach and 2013 Women's Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, becomes just the fifth leader of the Lady Mocs in program history.

Foster has amassed a career record of 783-307, good for 11th in NCAA history.

The 64-year-old recently completed his 11th season at Ohio State, after the school fired him following an 18-13 campaign. He also has coaching experience at Vanderbilt (1991-2002) and St. Joseph's (Pa.) (1978-91) and joins Rutgers women's coach C. Vivian Stringer as the only men's or women's basketball colligate coaches to win at least 200 games at three different schools.
