It was bound to happen eventually, one of Geno's staff would leave for a head coaching position. The question was not If but When? and of course, Who? Well, it turns out it is Tonya Cardoza. She has been an assistant coach with the Huskies for 14 seasons and a part of all 5 NCAA Championships. Today she was officially named head coach of the women's basketball team at Temple University. At UConn, she specialized in recruiting and grooming the guards. She inherets a team from her former Virginia Cavaliers teammate Dawn Staley, who left who the head coaching position at South Carolina (the Huskies will visit the Gamecocks as part of their upcoming non-conference schedule). And I don't think it will be long until we see the Owls on the Huskies schedule.
Good Luck Tonya, we will miss you!!!
And now the question becomes who does Geno pick to take Tonya's place as UConn Assistant Coach???
