Skip to content reporting Kellie Harper To Be Next Women’s Basketball Coach

April 13, 2009
Hat tip to Steven at SectionSix for the find. report:

N.C. State: BasketballScoop has learned that NC State plans to hire Kellie Harper as their new head coach. We expect an announcement early this week. Harper has been the head coach at Western Carolina for the past 5 seasons, accumulating a 97-65 record over that time. Harper was the point guard at Tennessee during their unprecetented run of three consecutive national championships in 96-98 (known then as Kellie Jolly). During her tenure at Western Carolina, her teams have shown constant improvement and have made the NCAA tournament twice. This past season they won their conference tournament for the second time in school history (both under her watch).

Here’s Harper’s profile at WCU’s athletics page.
