Coquese Washington isn’t looking to replace C. Vivian Stringer as women’s basketball coach at Rutgers. It is an impossible task.
Stringer, a Hall of Famer, has won more than 1,000 games in 50 years and made it to the Final Four four times with three different teams — Cheyney State, Iowa and Rutgers.
Washington, 51, admitted as much Tuesday after being introduced as the Scarlet Knights’ third full-time female head coach in nearly 40 years. The three-time Big Ten Conference coach of the year during a 12-year stint at Penn State, Washington said Stringer inspired her on and off the court. Washington’s goal is to build on the 74-year-old retiree’s accomplishments and get Rutgers back to the NCAA Tournament as soon as possible.
“What’s going to be constant is that determination to be great, the determination to give to your players and the importance of building those relationships,” Washington told a small crowd at Jersey Mike’s Arena.
Washington faces a major challenge next season after getting the job late, about three weeks after Stringer retired. She takes over a team that went 11-20 overall and 3-14 in the Big Ten under Tim Eatman last season. He led the team last season after Stringer decided not to coach due to concerns over COVID-19.
As of now, the Rutgers roster is uncertain due to the transfer portal. There are three returning players, two incoming freshmen, four more in the portal and one transfer who has not finalized his commitment.
Sporting director Pat Hobbs said he understood the issue and promised to be patient. He also said Washington, who was Nortre Dame’s associate head coach for the past two seasons, passed the virtual interview. She was the only candidate brought to campus for a second interview.
Hobbs had been tracking potential coaches throughout the season, but the search never began until Stringer announced his retirement.
A former player and WNBA champion, Washington was granted a six-year contract that guarantees total compensation of $4.625 million with additional performance incentives.
The press conference was not only attended by some female Rutgers fans. Three Notre Dame players, who live on site, were also present: Dara Mabry, Natalijia Marshall and Olivia Miles.
“She’s so much more than a coach,” Mabry said. ” She is a lawyer. She’s really, really smart, very knowledgeable. A model, especially for me. I know she’s going to be a role model for these girls. They’re really, really lucky to have him.
Mabry said Washington has even surprised Irish players on the pitch at times by working with them.
“Every once in a while in practice she would go fast and we would say ‘Whoa,'” Mabry said. “We didn’t expect her to still be able to move like that.”
Washington returns to the head coaching ranks for the first time since 2018-19, his final season at Penn State. The stint produced three Big Ten titles and three Coach of the Year honors.
It also ended with only one winning season in the last five. It’s something she attributed in part to outside issues, recruiting problems following the conviction of former Nittany Lions assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky in 2012 for sexual abuse.
After spending a year as associate head coach under Sherri Coale in Oklahoma, Washington returned to her alma mater and worked two seasons at Notre Dame under Niele Ivey.
“I was able to learn and grow a lot,” said Washington, who also served as president of the WNBA Players’ Association before returning to coaching. “I was in no rush to become head coach again, and it had to be the right opportunity. And that was it, that was this good opportunity.
Still, replacing Stringer promises to be a challenge.
“I just want to be someone she’s going to look up to and I’m like, ‘You know, you did a great job. “
