SEATTLE -- Washington on Tuesday introduced Kevin McGuff as its new women's basketball coach, charged with turning around a program that has fallen on hard times.
McGuff comes to Seattle after nine seasons at Xavier, where he compiled a 213-73 career record. McGuff set a record for most wins in program history, and reached the postseason in each season with the Musketeers, including an appearance in the round of eight a year ago. His five straight NCAA tournament appearances was also a Xavier record.
McGuff was given a five-year contract worth an average of $475,000 per season.
McGuff, an Ohio native, replaces Tia Jackson, who resigned last month after four lackluster seasons with the Huskies.
