Big jump up from Division III. I wonder why she stayed at Tufts so long considering her coaching success? Did she interview for other jobs or did she simply want to stay at Tufts for personal reasons.

Impressive resume but she has some BIG shoes to fill to put it mildly. Fortunately, she has Bella for a year to help the transition.

It sounds like Coach Berube likes the academics first environment at Tufts, and she is cut from the same mold as Coach Banghart.

Geno Auriemma is on record saying this is a great fit. I give his opinion a lot of weight given how well he knows Coach Berube.

Hoping to hear something from the current players and the incoming freshmen about how they are on board with this hire, but it sounds like if you had to replace Courtney, you couldn’t do much better.
