UB women‘s basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack has interviewed for the Penn State job, per source. PSU very interested in coach Jack but I would assume many schools would be after the job she’s done at UB.— Josh Reed (@4JoshReed) March 28, 2019
The Nittany Lions fired Conquese Washington in early March after 12 years.
ESPN recently listed Legette-Jack as a potential candidate at Tennessee after the Vols parted ways with Holly Warlick.
