South Florida Bulls

The women's head coach is Jose Fernandez. Fernandez arrived in Tampa, in April 2000, as an assistant women's basketball coach and was officially named head coach on Dec. 14, 2000. As head coach at USF he has guided the Bulls to an unprecedented five-straight postseason tournaments and to the cusp of bringing his program into the upper echelon of the Big East Conference. Under his tutelage, USF advanced to the program's first-ever NCAA Tournament during the 2005-06 season, and to five seasons of .500 or better — in the past seven years — after the Bulls had recorded just three winning seasons, all 14-13 records, in the last 23 years. He has also guided USF to two 20-win campaigns — 21-11 in 2004-05 and 21-12 in 2006-07 — over the last four years. On April 4, 2009, he led the team to their first-ever post season championship with a 75-71 win over the Kansas Jayhawks in the WNIT.
