: : Huh?? Are you serious? I have seen players develop rapidly under Close as a coach, especially her post players. I have also seen significant improvement in Canada's overall game under Close. I beg to differ with the previous post that referred to her as a great recruiter only.
: I think most people who really pay attention would say she is a decent not great coach.
: She is really nice and a good recruiter. But she gets outcoached in games and I don't believe players improve enough.
: But we can agree to disagree.
Close is never up for another big coaching job. Her name is never mentioned by the fans when one comes up and neither are her assistant coaches.
I think she's a nice lady, a decent coach, a great recruiter but has created an average program. However, UCLA has become a fairly average athletic program so she fits in.
